Festival in Exile: Syria
Six documentary films by Syrian filmmakers chart the development of the country’s film history – from the uprising in the 1970s, through political backlashes to the present day.
LAST MEN IN ALEPPO
The Syrian uprising began in 2011 and became a brutal war. In 2013 volunteers joined together to create the civilian protection force, the White Helmets. LAST MEN IN ALEPPO accompanies the first responders on their missions. An unsparing look at the appalling everyday life in the beleaguered city.
