The Syrian Hazem Alhamwi retreated into his own room, and discovered freedom in drawing. When the revolution broke out in 2011, filmmaker and artist Alhamwi was not yet able to face his inner demons directly. Instead, he explores his childhood memories – and in the process, his nation’s longing for freedom.
