Jessica almost lost her life by a sniper bullet that narrowly missed her, she was also subjected to a prolonged interrogation and harassment by both the RCMP and CSIS upon returning to Canadian soil. “Une histoire syrienne” is a short documentary narrative that describes Jessica’s quest for social justice through her lens as a photojournalist who covered the 2012 Quebec Maple Spring protests upclose and how she sees that injustice compared to what she experienced in Syria.
