The Cave (Feras Fayyad)
- This event has passed.
In war-ravaged Syria, Dr Amani is a young woman working in a subterranean emergency medical centre in the city of Ghouta, near Damascus. As bombs drop and lethal chemicals fill in the air, she has to treat injured patients (many young children) in tense, horrifying circumstances, while also enduring the casual chauvinism of those who think no woman should be running a hospital. Feras Fayyad (Last Men in Aleppo, CFF 2017) once again celebrates the nobility and resilience of his country-folk while cementing his reputation as one of the most vital voices working in documentary today.
