Event Details

Since the beginning of the Civil War in 2011, many displaced Syrians have been forced to flee their homes with just the clothes on their backs. In the height of war, not a moment could be spared to pack the vital items that they would need to start a new life outside of Syria. They left behind the passports and identity cards that prove their existence and now live stranded, both in Syria and abroad.

'Forged' exposes how the Syrian Regime is using the control of documentation and identity to silence the victims of a decade-long conflict. Four Syrian families seek different paths to obtain their freedom, some turning to forgers working in hiding against the regime.
