Syrian journalist and activist Omar al Muqdad has been covering the Syrian Revolution since it began in March 2011. Omar lived for a year as a refugee in Turkey, where he assisted international media covering the Syrian Revolution. He continued to find ways to sneak back into Syria to help news organizations report on atrocities in the region.
His documentary “We Left Them Behind” chronicles the story of kidnapped journalists who vanished in Syria and investigates their stories from the moment they set foot in Turkey until their disappearance.
