For Sama is an intimate, urgent documentary about 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 whether or not to flee the city to protect her daughter’s life. But leaving would mean 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.

Content warning: this film contains detailed real-life war footage that may distress some viewers. 

Followed by a Q&A with director Waad al-Kateab and co-director Edward Watts
