THE WAR SHOW trailer from DOXBIO on Vimeo.

In March 2011, radio host Obaidah Zytoon and friends join the street protests against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Knowing the Arab Spring will forever change their country, this group of artists and activists begin filming their lives and the events around them. But as the regime’s violent response spirals the country into a bloody civil war, their hopes for a better future are tested by violence, imprisonment and death. Obaidah journeys around the country, where she witnesses the rise of extremism. The War Show captures the fate of Syria through the lens of a small circle of friends.
