Farenheit 9/11 & Syria

So perhaps some of the more legal-minded folks of the blogosphere can help me understand something.
Point 1: Currently, the US has sanctions in place on Syria which impose a “Prohibition on the export to Syria of products of the United States, other than food and medicine” .
Point 2: Michael Moore’s film, Farenheit 9/11, a product of the United States, is being distributed in Syria (and elsewhere) by the UAE based company Front Row Entertainment, which has obtained international distribution rights to the film.
So: Is the fact that F9/11 isn’t being directly exported to Syria (but is being routed through a UAE-based company) enough to avoid violating the sanctions?
And if not…?
