Directed by Waed Al Khateab | 2019

For five years—from her days as a student activist through her marriage through the birth of her daughter, Sama—filmmaker Waad Al-Khateab chronicled her life in Aleppo as civil war consumed the city, choosing to stay and fight for freedom amid the nonstop barrage of bullets and bombs. Winner of both the Jury and Audience Awards for Best Documentary at SXSW, For Sama is an extraordinary, profoundly human chronicle of survival amidst unimaginable devastation.

Q&A with journalist Sam Dagher, followed by a signing of his new book Assad or We Burn the Country
