That makes it a less immersive and immediate piece of filmmaking than Cartel Land, though no less valuable. Heineman finds a fascinating perspective on the unfolding tragedy, and finds heroes in an unexpected place (and, for many people these days, an unexpected profession). Afineevskys Cries From Syria does not so much look for heroes as show the awful face of tragedy. A warning might be in order: The doc, which will air on HBO, might well be the hardest film to sit through in the Sundance lineup not because its bad, but because it is so overwhelmingly sad. The film opens with a shot of the corpse of a ผ้าปูที่นอน 8 นิ้ว young boy, lying face-down on a Mediterranean beach after drowning ราคา ชุด ผ้าปูที่นอน when a boatload of Syrian refugees sank. Its a gut punch in the first minute of the movie, impossible to shake.

Afineevskys Winter on Fire, which dealt with the citizen protests that toppled Ukraines president, has moments of real triumph (though a postscript about Putins plans for the country was sobering).
