Film Screening: For Sama
24/02/2020 @ 19:30 - 21:00
The BASIS – Middle East Committee is super excited to announce that we are hosting a film screening of the award winning and Oscar nominated documentary FOR SAMA!
FOR SAMA is both 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.
WHEN? February 24th at 19.30 (7.30PM)
WHERE? Room 356 at Wijnhaven
We will provide snacks and drinks!
This event is free, but please consider to support the filmmakers of FOR SAMA.
With no end in sight to the attacks in Idlib, the Syrian medics, healthcare workers and civil society organisations leading the humanitarian response need all the support they can get. This is particularly acute as foreign governments’ funding to Syria decreases year on year, while the needs grow ever greater.
