Good Things Come in Threes!

We've all heard the old adage that bad things happen in threes but can't good things happen in threes as well? We think so!

Since our colleauge, Elizabeth, returned from Jordan back in Janurary, the 3G team has been hard at work. Now, four months later, we're pleased to share with you the latest news regarding our Syrian Stories project.

  1. It's complete!!! We're thrilled to announce the latest addition to 3G's film repertoire - Three
  2. Three's trailer has garnered hundreds of views all around the world! If you haven't seen it already, watch the trailer here.
  3. Three is already beginning to receive press! On Tuesday, Jane and Elizabeth were invited onto Huffington Post Live to discuss the film. Check out the segment here.

As we begin promotion for Three, we look forward to what is to come. We still, however, need your help.

Donate today and your money will enable us to send Three to more film festivals, help us develop promotional materials, and fund our outreach campaign.

As always, thank you for your continued support of our project. We couldn't do what we do without you!

Notes from the field

Aisha
Aisha

Our production team has just returned from Amman, Jordan, where they were recording the heart-wrenching stories of refugees from the brutal civil war in Syria.  We were lucky to find a woman who has been working closely with refugees for the past year.  She introduced us to six individuals and families, each who deserves a platform to tell their story.

Here is an excerpt from our interview with Aisha, a mother and grandmother whose eldest son was detained by the Syrian army.  He disappeared a year and a half ago into a prison which was recently revealed to have tortured, starved, and executed 11,000 detainees. 

"What do you think of when you wake up in the morning?"

"Me? I don’t even sleep, I don’t sleep. I stay awake all night and when I sleep I wake up very, very tired and all I think of is going back, but I have a sick husband and there aren’t hospitals there. I’m forced to stay here, though I actually can’t stand still here. When I wake up in the morning, I want to explode. That’s my situation in the morning."

Please help us provide a platform for her voice, and the millions of other Syrians who are living in exile.
