This film tells the story of six media activists in Syria. Amidst the chaos of the uprising they struggle to tell the story of Qusayr, their town to the outside world. They risk their lives on a daily basis coming under attack from the regular and indiscriminate heavy shelling. The Revolution Is Being Televised follows the work of Trad and five friends, as they capture the horrific realities of life in Syria, edit material together and argue about how they get it out to the rest of the world. This is their personal story - one of loss of family members, of survival and of fighting for a cause - where the risks and losses are made worthwhile by their first intoxicating taste of freedom.
