Dreaming of a better Syria after being forced to flee

Waad Al-Kateab filmed the brutal siege and destruction of Aleppo for Channel 4 News and her footage became the Oscar nominated film ‘For Sama’.

She was forced to flee Syria and she’s been speaking to some of the other 12 million who were also forced from their homes, who hoped for regime change and who still dream of a different Syria.

This is her, and their, personal reflections on the revolution.
