De Balie, Kleine-Gartmanplantsoen 10 in Amsterdam.
Meanwhile, her husband Hamza works in the hospital he set up, which eventually becomes a target of a new air raid. As the danger draws closer, the young family struggles with the dilemma: will they flee to keep their daughter safe, or will they stay to support their friends and those who have stayed in the resistance? For Sama is a letter from a mother to her child and offers an intimate and heart-wrenching view from the inside of the Syrian conflict.
For Sama won the prize for Best Documentary at Cannes and has been shortlisted for the 2020 Oscar for best Documentary.
During this special screening of For Sama, there will be a talk after the film. More info TBA. Keep an eye on our website!
