A Conversation with Waad al Kateab, Edward Watts & Jon Snow

This conversation was filmed at Sheffield Doc/Fest 2019 following the screening of For Sama, with directors Waad al-Kateab and Edward Watts and protagonist Hamza al-Kateab, hosted by broadcaster Jon Snow.

Told as a message from a young Syrian mother Waad al-Kateab to her daughter, For Sama traces Waad's life through five years of the uprising in Aleppo as she falls in love, gets married and gives birth. An intimate, visceral documentary about the female experience of war, Waad wrestles with an impossible choice – whether or not to flee the city to protect her daughter's life, when leaving means abandoning the struggle for freedom for which she has already sacrificed so much.
