For Sama (2019)


DIRECTOR(S): Waad al-Khateab, Edward Watts


GENRE: Documentary Film

SYNOPSIS: An astonishing look into motherhood and the female experience of war, this is one of those movies we promise will change you forever. For five years Waad al-Kateab kept her camera on, documenting her life and those around her as activists in Aleppo. Part diary, part love letter to her daughter, this poignant film follows al-Kateab’s beginnings as a hopeful student protester, to her falling in love, getting married, and having her first child, all while conflict rises around her.
