Syria had been introduced to cinema in 1908 by a screening at a cafe in Aleppo. Acclaimed filmmakers are usually known for their work that criticizes the anti democratic practices of the government. Since the war mostly documentaries are being produced and they continue to oppose Baas regime and focus on the destruction, the exiles, and the refugees. Observation is the most effective method in making documentaries that embodies the social references. Documentaries shot in the region make it possible to follow the historical timeline and to observe the situation in detail. Since the beginning of the war thirteen million Syrians have been displaced and almost half a million people have been killed. The piece aims to express that the importance of the documentaries about Syria which center around the resistance against the regime, ISIS, and Bashar Al-Assad depends more on their mission as the colllective memory, which is crucial for the region, rather than their cinematic value.
