“We will live to see these things, or, five pictures of what may come to
pass” is a documentary video in five parts about competing visions of an uncertain future. Shot in 2005 06 in Damascus, Syria, each section of the piece‹the chronicle of a building in downtown Damascus, a recitation anticipating the arrival of a perfect leader, an interview with a dissident intellectual, a portrait of a Qur’an school for young girls, and an imagining of the world made anew‹offers a different perspective on what might come to pass in a place where people live between the competing forces of a repressive regime, a growing conservative Islamic movement, and intense pressure from the United States.
