For Sama

Waal Al-Khateab and Edward Watts | 100 mins | UK | 2019 | Digital | Subtitled


Belltable | Mon, 30th Sept | 5.15pm & 8pm | €8


An intimate yet epic journey into the female experience of the war in Syria, For Sama is an emotionally wrenching account of a contemporary atrocity.

The film tells the story of Waad Al-Khateab’s life through the five years of the uprising in Aleppo as she falls in love, gets married, and gives birth to her daughter, Sama, all while cataclysmic conflict rages around her. 

She captures incredible stories of everyday life as she wrestles with an impossible choice, whether or not to flee to protect her daughter’s life when leaving means abandoning the struggle for freedom for which she has already sacrificed so much.
