For Sama image

For Sama (18)

An intimate and epic journey into the female experience of war. A love letter from a young mother to her daughter, the film tells the story of Waad al-Kateab’s life through five years of the uprising in Aleppo, Syria as she falls in love, gets married and gives birth to Sama, all while cataclysmic conflict rises around her.

Her camera captures incredible stories of loss, laughter and survival as Waad wrestles with an impossible choice – whether or not to flee the city to protect her daughter’s life, when leaving means abandoning the struggle for freedom for which she has already sacrificed so much.


★★★★★

“There simply hasn’t been a film like it before….A guttural cry of despair and an incendiary plea for justice. A fellow critic has already called it, ‘One of the most important films you will ever see in your life’. And I’m inclined to agree” - The Times
