Theo Who Lived

In 2012, Theo Padnos, an American journalist, slipped into Syria to report on the country’s civil war and was promptly kidnapped by Al Qaeda. In THEO WHO LIVED, Padnos returns to the Middle East, and retraces the physical and emotional steps of his harrowing 22-month journey in this intimate portrait of personal resilience, and grace in the face of hate.
