Last Men in Aleppo
First screened in June 2017
Director: Feras Fayyad. Documentary about volunteer rescue workers in Syria during the escalating attacks on Aleppo, debating whether to stay in their home city. Twitter Capsule:
Blistering account of a city under siege and of people stretching the bounds of what they consider survivable.
Invaluable and extraordinarily risky document of on-the-ground heroism, without sanding down the complicated edges of the men's motivations.
