Produced and narrated by journalist Waad Al-Kateab, For Sama presents an intimate and confronting portrait of life and motherhood in a war zone. Speaking directly to her newborn daughter, Sama, Al-Kateab captures the pain and trauma of life in Aleppo during the Syrian Civil War – where her husband, Hamza, is one of the few remaining doctors – amidst constant airstrikes and devastation.

For Sama became the most-nominated documentary to date at the BAFTA awards, where it also won Best Documentary. It was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.
