Clips from Voices in the Wilderness

00:13Copy video clip URL The film opens with a shot of a a destroyed building.

00:50Copy video clip URL The film cuts to a hospital, where a midwife swathes a baby. A doctor soon arrives to care for the child, who begins crying.

1:20Copy video clip URL The film cuts to a different child, also being treated by a doctor, who looks to be underweight. A nurse can be barely heard saying that the child needs nutrition. The audio is hard to make out.

02:00Copy video clip URL The film cuts again to a woman in a head scarf holding a baby, and some narration can be heard — though not intelligibly.

02:15Copy video clip URL The narrator can be heard to not that the children have been surviving on sugar and water for months, after the recent bombings. The narrator notes that children have been deteriorating over five months of malnourishment. She compares the children to limp rags, unable to hold themselves up.

03:00Copy video clip URL A new shot begins, this one of a particularly frail child with pale skin.

O3:30 The film cuts from brief blackness to a shot of tall, bombed-out buildings.

03:45Copy video clip URL The film cuts to a new shot, this one of a large building which seems to be teetering on a frail skeleton of what it once was. The film quickly cuts back to another shot, this one of a large mosque that seems to be under construction. The film cuts to a shot of the same mosque, this time in a vehicle heading the other way.

04:40Copy video clip URL A new shot begins, this one also from a vehicle, of some indistinct structures in the distance.
