Documenting Syria's destruction: Oscar-nominated film director speaks out


This month marks 10 years since what looked like another country in the region getting swept up in a whirlwind of pro-democracy revolt. But for Syria, it was the start of a conflict which has been dubbed the defining war of the early 21st century. We hear from a Syrian voice who has had to deal with everything from fleeing his country, to receiving death threats, to fearing for his family's safety, all this for shedding light on the atrocities taking place inside Syria. Feras Fayyad is the director of the Oscar-nominated and Emmy Award-winning documentary "Last Men in Aleppo".
