Bassel Shehadeh – Syrian filmmaker killed in Homs

When watching Saturday Morning Gift, it is hard to not feel moved. The sense of loss displayed in the short film becomes even more evident as we now know that its director was killed this week in Homs.

His tragic fate came as a result of a shelling attack on the city of Homs on Monday. Bassel Shehadeh is one of an estimated 12,000 victims who has fallen since the Syrian uprising started in 2011.
