"Braiding the reflections of nine variously affected individuals... David Henry Gerson’s film successfully keeps the big picture and the smaller canvas in conscientious balance, disrupting overwhelming tragedy with more hopeful flashes of invention and inspiration....
"Simple and unadorned in construction, “The Story Won’t Die” generously and compassionately observes its subjects’ fevered creative flow without appropriating any of it as its own."
- Guy Lodge, Variety
“The Story Won’t Die” will move audiences to greater awareness and understanding of the Syria crisis. We’ve all seen footage of bombed-out buildings in Syria and statistics, but it’s the individual stories that will make everyone see themselves in the people in this film.”
- Shepard Fairey in conversation with Peter Debruge, David Henry Gerson, Abu Hajar & Diala Brisly.
