Synopsis

The camera keeps on filming as the bombs continue to fall and the inhabitants of Aleppo continue to die, day after day. Without words, the lens focuses on the smoldering ruins and the people struggling to survive among them. This small, loving mosaic of images shows the resilience and resistance of the Syrians, building tiny beacons of hope and keeping up their courage by rolling up their sleeves and getting on with life.

Review

One day in Aleppo shows the life in Aleppo, one of the oldest cities in the world where the Syrian Civil War broke out, by condensing one day in the city into a 25-minute film. The "24 hours" for the audience is actually an endless, continuous time for the people who are living there. Several times a day, explosion swishes and cannonball falls. It gets closer. It falls on another side of the city and nearer in the middle of the film. At last, it falls over to the house where the camera is. Father lightens up the candle for a child is carried on a stretcher. Seen from a bird's eye views, Aleppo is full of debris from collapsed buildings and torn-out walls. Even though in extreme fear, people must live. The routines should not only include collecting bodies and clearing the remains of collapsed buildings but also sharing the food shortage with street cats and painting the walls with children hoping for peace. They are dreaming for precarious tomorrow, where fear is only evidence of being alive. [KIM Sukyun]
