Hotter Than Syria

He fled Syria. He settled in Manchester. Now he's attempting to beat the world record for the longest beatbox marathon


From Aleppo to Manchester, Naeim Alnajjar takes on the world record attempt to conquer the longest human beatbox challenge - 30 hours of exhausting, mouth-breaking and continuous beatboxing.

Performing this challenge live at Tribeca, a nightclub in Manchester, Naeim (know as Madz) will have to mentally and physically endure an almost impossible task.

The documentary is told through a once-in-a-lifetime competition and projected by the joy, enthusiasm and desire to excel in a new, unfamiliar world.

Hotter Than Syria is currently in post-production due for release December 2021.
