50 Feet From Syria

50 Feet From Syria is a portrait of surgeon Hisham Bismar as he performs intricate acts of medical necessity undeterred by the chaos and complexity of war around him.  The film serves as a snapshot in time of the plight of refugees displaced by the Syrian uprising and indelibly communicates the human cost of one of most brutal, dehumanizing conflicts in modern history that continues to destroy and displace millions of lives.
