Guest: Evgeny Afineevsky, Documentary Filmmaker, “Cries from Syria” The Syrian Civil War – now in its seventh year – is entering the final stages. One last rebel-stronghold in the north of Syria is under assault from Syria government forces. But just a few days ago, Turkey and Russia appear to have brokered a surprise truce that will forestall Russian involvement in the government assault for one month and set up a buffer zone to shield three million civilians living the region. At least half of them are refugees from fighting elsewhere in Syria. Many, many of the Syrians affected by the long-running war are children. The HBO documentary “Cries from Syria” captures the war through the eyes of Syria’s children.
