DNK/SYR | 2019 | dir. Feras Fayyad, with Amani Ballour, Salin Namour

Oscar nominated director Feras Fayyad (Last Men in Aleppo) returns to his native, war-torn Syria to follow a dedicated team of female doctors who tirelessly treat casualties in an underground hospital with limited resources while battling systemic sexism.

The screening on 7 December will be followed by panel discussion hosted by Rita Dayoub (Chatham House) with Dr. Shamser Sinha, Senior Lecturer in Sociology and Youth Studies (University of Suffolk), Dr. Omar Imady, Syrian-American scholar, novelist, and poet Hassan Akkad, Syrian refugee and storyteller (Exodus: Our Journey to Europe)
