Abounaddara is an anonymous collective of Syrian filmmakers that emerged at the onset of the civil uprising that led to the Syrian Civil War. Abounaddara—Arabic for “man with glasses”—produces one short video portrait every week and posts it on the Internet, showing individual Syrians on all sides of the conflict and providing an immediate and alternative image of Syrian society. Working in a state of emergency, the collective’s members are all volunteers and anonymous.
