Under the Sky of Damascus
(Tahta Simaa Dimashk)

by Ismaïl ANZOUR

This is the second silent film made in Syria, but it really is the first Syrian film from the technical and cinematic point of view. It is the only yet superb, present offered by Syrian cinema to world silent cinéma.A man is found murdered under the balcony of the daughter of a bourgeois family. She is accused of having had a strange relationship with him. A document on the daily life of Syrians and their attitudes, in the 1930’s.
