For Sama (2019)

UK / US / Syria
Director: Waad Al-Kateab; Cast: Hamza Al-Kateab, Sama Al-Kateab, Waad Al-Kateab

For Sama is Waad Al-Kateab’s highly personal journey through the Syrian Civil War as a student, wife, mother and political activist / filmmaker. Deciding to stay in Aleppo with her newborn daughter and to support and document her husband’s work as a doctor in the war-torn city, Al-Kateab questions her decision to stay as the regime’s forces close in upon them. Difficult to watch, For Sama is an extraordinary document of hope, pain and suffering and a heartfelt explanation to her daughter (Klaus Ming February 2020).
