On 28th October 2012, a government jet dropped a large bomb on the village of al-Bara. Only 300 meters away, Olly Lambert was filming a meeting of rebel soldiers. While keeping his camera rolling, Lambert documented the shocking impact of regime air strikes on a civilian population.
As he was editing the highly acclaimed Syria: Across the Lines – a revealing report for Channel 4/PBS from the sectarian front lines of rural Syria, with unprecedented access to both sides – he realised the footage shot that day in al-Bara offered a candid insight into the reality of documenting a war. Lambert decided to narrate the raw footage and publish it online, creating a rare, immersive and astonishingly powerful portrait of the civil war.
As part of 'Between the Lines', Lambert will screen The Bombing of al-Bara (36 minutes) and discuss filmmaking on the frontline.
