“WithSyria” is a movement of over 130 organizations around the world standing in solidarity with those caught in conflict. Partnered with Purpose NY, WithSyria asked UNIT9 to create a film to help spread their message.

Childhood In Reverse shows the destruction needlessly caused by bombing in Syria. The artistic direction of the film is as engaging as its message.

“I wanted the treatment of the film to have a conceptual discordance,” continues Stirling. “Two ideas running parallel: violence and beauty. Using slow-motion and the music track felt appropriate with the reverse time concept. All the chaos and destruction harmonize with the final message. If the film wasn’t in reverse I don’t think this treatment would have been appropriate at all.”

The film is a beautiful story that urges the viewer to stand in solidarity with those affected by the conflict in Syria. “It really is the result of an entire cast and crew who were so incredibly passionate about the subject that they poured their heart and souls into it,” says Stirling.
