About Bronx Documentary Center: Bronx Documentary Center (BDC) is a non-profit gallery and educational space. Their mission is to share photography, film and new media with underserved Bronx communities and the cultural community at large. They use these mediums to foster dialogue around contemporary local, national and global issues.
Return to Homs Conversation Starter: Ossama, who hoped that his videos and photographs “would shake the world to its core,” was presumably detained or killed by Syrian authorities for filming them. What is it about media coverage that repressive governments fear? What contributions do fighters who take cameras into battle instead of guns make?
For more prompts for discussion, take a look at the Return to Homs Discussion Guide.
