PALMYRA: RISING FROM THE ASHES

Land of a thousand-year-old history, Iraq recently and Syria nowadays are in the grip of a war that, lately, also saw the iconoclast fury of extremists from ISIS. Emblematic artworks of the first human societies which originated Middle-Eastern and Western cultures have been targeted and destroyed for their symbolic value. Palmyra: Rising from the Ashes is a documentary – of around 45′ – that focuses on the power of images and its use in the fight between ISIS and the West.
