I’m so proud to be in Park City for the Sundance Film Festival 2017. I’m here to support the HBO premiere of ‘Cries From Syria’, directed by Evgeny Affineevsky.

]Isn’t it symbolic that that painful documentary I too contributed a little, Cries from Syria, is being premiered today at the Sundance Film Festival while I’m in Astana at Syrian talks :). Very happy for the people who made it happen, they gotta be proud of what they’ve done. Evgeny Afineevsky, Aaron Butler, Tomas Srovnal, Martin Tillman, you deserve a great deal of applause! 👏🏻👏🏻. You told the story that us journo junkies keep following.We stay on top of it, we never leave it – we live it. So here goes my personal cheers for Kholoud Waleed, my hero, Thaer Al Tahli, Fares Alzahaby, Fadi Dahouk, ناطور ناطور, Salim Hudaifah, Hossam Yonso, Mohamad Aljunde and many other journalists and human rights defenders who will keep on telling the Syria’s story. And I’m here in Astana now, now for you and humanity you represent-the best people I’ve met in my long life. Long live Syria! – Shahida Tulaganova
