The director of a Syrian documentary that scooped a top prize at the Sundance film festival says his film pays tribute to the "steadfastness" of the besieged city of Homs.The movie "Return to Homs" was awarded the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize for a documentary at the prestigious U.S. film festival last week, much to director Talal Derki's delight.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 .Derki, who is now based on the Turkish side of the border with Syria, is working on another documentary about the war in Syria.
