More Info

~ A powerful new documentary about the early days of the uprising in Syria.

The event is in some ways a tribute to the community’s role in sponsoring Syrian refugees.

The Saugeen Shores Refugee Group is hosting this event, with support from

Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC).

The film, Little Gandhi, is an award-winning look at the role of Syrian peace activist,

Ghiyath Matar.

Ghiyath Matar became an iconic figure in Syria’s freedom movement

for giving flowers & water to troops sent to break up non-violent protests

in the town of Daraya, in the early days of the uprising.

Matar died in the custody of Syrian security forces in 2011.

The 2015 film was funded by IDRC’s Governance & Justice unit.

Film Director, Sam Kadi, will take part in a question & answer period

by Skype along with Roula El-Rifai of IDRC.
