- The eleventh edition of Suwar sheds light on the Syrian theatre and art. This edition provides investigations into the current situation of Syrian theatre in the diaspora and the new documentary filmmaking and cinematography methods that have emerged in opposition to those imposed by the regime.
* Regarding Syrian doctors, Suwar has discussed their situation and how they have been targeted by all parties and describes their difficult work conditions in the regime’s semi-destroyed hospitals and opposition-held areas. Unfortunately, the situation of doctors who are working outside Syria is not much better than the situation of their brothers inside who are facing legal obstacles in practicing their work.
