We have a special fundraising screening in January of For Sama. Raising funds for the David Nott Foundation. David Nott was a surgeon in Aleppo at the same time as the filming of this documentary. Since 2015 the Foundation he set up with his wife Elly, has disseminated the knowledge he has gained, training other doctors in the art of saving lives threatened by bombs, bullets and natural disasters.

We are delighted that Elly Nott will join us for the screening and will introduce the charity and its work. Elly is an alumna of St Hildas and so has connections with the city.

For Sama is both an intimate and epic journey into 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. 

For Sama was awarded the Prix L’Œil d’Or for Best Documentary at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. It also won the Grand Jury Award for Best Documentary at the SXSW Film Festival, and the Special Jury Prize for International Feature Documentary at the Hot Docs Festival.
