Journalist and Arab media specialist Hussain Abdul Hussain links to a remarkable film about the Syrian uprising, Syria’s Youth Revolutionaries:

Hussain explains that this short documentary from Journeyman productions has been on the web for about a month now, featuring interviews with a number of Syrian opposition figures. “These guys are really impressive,” says Hussain, who knows many of the film’s subjects, including one man who explains how he saw a group of security officers beating a girl and rushed in to rescue her. The man recalls the surprise in the eyes of one of the policemen, who couldn’t believe he had the nerve to rush them. “No matter how many videos of the uprising you see,” says Hussain, “you only understand the courage of the opposition when you hear these people talk.”
