This is a moment from "Whispers," one of six short documentaries shown at a recent screening of works that emerged from a filmmaking workshop organized by Bidayyat for Audiovisual Arts, a nonprofit association that serves as an incubator for documentaries and experimental short films.The documentaries are no longer than 20-30 minutes each and vary greatly in subject matter. These doc shorts are the work of aspiring young talents, so every now and then there may be a weird bit of sound editing or some scenes might be too brightly lit.The film starts with the director trying to unlock a door, fumbling with the key for so long that the hallway light goes out, back on and then out again.Most of the featured directors were Syrian nationals, with a few Lebanese.As "Broken Cadre" director Abdullah Al Taweel put it, at "the start of the revolution in Syria, I had a camera.The film "Whispers" takes up a different theme of transition.All Bidayyat documentaries will be uploaded to the association's website where they can be watched free of charge.
