For Sama

1h 40m
Documentary, 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.

"For Sama" is a gripping documentary about Syria's civil war. It explicitly depicts all of the destruction and suffering that has occurred in disturbing footage. This is definitely not for the faint of heart. The film's framework is the first-hand account of a mother's experience, who addresses the footage to her daughter. In the end, this aspect is also the reason why the film works so well. It is not just one horrible event after another. Instead, the film has a very intimate, personal level as well. This heightens your sympathy for the people of besieged Aleppo.

'For Sama' is a tough watch, made even harder knowing that the neighbouring city of Idlib is currently under siege in the same way. It is also a beautifully edited and narrated piece that needs to reach as many people as possible, since we have no perception of what the Syrian war was like via tradi More
