For Sama is an intimate and epic journey into the female experience of war. A love letter from a young mother to her daughter, the film documents Waad Al-Kateab's life through the uprising in Aleppo, Syria, as she falls in love, gets married, and gives birth. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers—currently touring with Frontline's international release of this documentary—in conversation with the Human Rights Center.
