We support a documentary entitled “Aleppo. Notes from the Dark”

Aleppo, Syria
support for education

“Aleppo. Notes from the Dark” is a unique depiction of life in the city seen by its citizens struggling with difficulties of war. Harrowing journalist accounts of rescue actions following bombardments intertwine with considerations of the characters of the film.

The footage was recorded in Syria in July and August 2013, when Wojciech Szumowski and Michał Przedlacki from Szumowski Studio conducted their work in the insurgent city under bombardment. The film shows a panorama of concrete persons and presents their account. Harrowing journalist accounts of rescue actions following bombardments intertwine with considerations of the characters of the film regarding Islam that is the religion that constitutes their identity. What do they do when they fall into despair? The dramatic end of their fate is marked by brutal death.

The film has received excellent reviews all over the world. It is widely recognized by filmmakers, experts in contemporary military conflicts, non-governmental organization, and, most of all, by Syrians. The film’s broadcast on Al Jazeera has essentially increased the role of the film in the discourse on humanitarian crisis related to the Syrian conflict. Kulczyk Foundation will be a leader of aid activities organized with respect to the project and an intermediary between the donors and non-governmental organizations conducting aid measures.

As Wojciech Szumowski claims “there were several dozen persons who have created the film. All of them were honest, open and dedicated to our work. They wanted their truth on the revolution to be seen by the world. Together with Michał, we minimized our personal narratives so as to give the voice to the characters, who eventually became our friends. They are true authors of the film – my friends. Several of them have already passed away”.
