Just over a year later than intended due to Covid restrictions we are ready to share with you this amazing Bafta Award Winning Best Documentary FOR SAMA with special guest introducing the documentary.
We are going ahead with the screening of the documentary in a slightly different manner than intended. Instead of hosting the screening the village hall, we are pleased to be able to offer it TO VIEW IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME. FOR SAMA is an intimate and epic journey into the female experience of war. The war in Syria doesn't seem to slow down, it has now be raging for 10 years. All FUNDS raised goes to support the wonderful work of the organisation Action For Sama
The Documentary is 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.
The film is the first feature documentary by Emmy award-winning filmmakers, Waad al-Kateab and Edward Watts.
"the events depicted in For Sama are so appalling, so hellish, that it is tempting to look away, to pretend it’s not happening. But we owe it to Waad, and so many others like her, not only to give it our full attention, but to scream its humanitarian message from the rooftops." Sight and Sound
