Yemen, Chaos in Silence
This crucial exposé offers rare dispatches from the ongoing war in Yemen. By amplifying the voices of victims and their desperate plea for global intervention, this timely documentary cuts through the politics to contextualize this convoluted war and its catastrophic toll on the Middle East's most vulnerable population.
As of 2019, Yemen is still facing the worse humanitarian crisis in recent history. After four years of a deadly civil war between Houthi rebels and the destabilized Yemeni government, the intervention of the global community remains largely callous.
Widely recognized as an extension of the Saudi-Irani proxy conflict, the ongoing war in Yemen represents a concerning development in the recent spread of instability affecting the Middle East. With the escalation of sectarian violence subverting popular uprisings erupted during the Arab Spring, militarized proxy conflicts have become a cynical instrument for dominance by regional powers.
'Yemen, Chaos and Silence' confronts its viewers with a brutal conflict that has been taking place without external witnesses. From Aden in the south to Sanaa in the north, via Taez, the front line, this documentary explores a devastated nation eroded by political and sectarian divisions and ravaged by catastrophic famine and plagues, where the decisive intervention of the international community is desperately needed but fails to arrive.
