 Return to Homs (2013) by Syrian director Telal Derky has won numerous awards including the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival (2014), Best Documentary Feature at the San Francisco International Film Festival (2014), among several others.

The film tracks the evolution of the Syrian uprising from peaceful protests into a war that has killed more than 130,000 people.

Derki was born in Damascus in 1977, but decided to focus on Homs, Syria's third city, because it was a magnet for activists and protesters in the early days of the uprising that broke out in March 2011. He followed two young Syrians, Abdel-Basset Al-Sarout, a young goalkeeper who became the city's most popular singer of protest songs, and Osama Al-Homsi, a university student-turned-media activist.

The screening will begin at 9.30pm at Zawya and producer Orwa Nyrabia will be in attendance
