For Sama (Cert 18)

Description of event:

war in Aleppo and the devastation

Wed 13th Nov 2019

Starts 00:00 hrs


A harrowing yet tender account of the war in Aleppo and the devastation wrought on the city, its people and children.

In 2012, Waad al-Kateab met her future husband, Dr Zahed Katurji, at protests against President Bashar al-Assad. Both were dedicated to a new Syria: she, a marketing student, filmed, while he provided first aid. The resulting documentary is in part a family video diary: falling in love, a wedding, the birth of a child, hanging out with their friends. But for all the irrepressible, relatable joy of these events, shells and bombs are often in the background.

In Arabic with English subtitles.

Running time: 2h, including ads and trailers.
