Last Men In Aleppo – Canberra

Feras Fayyad / Denmark, Syria / 104 mins / Arabic with English subtitles / Documentary

“What is horrifying and sad is punctuated only by the heroism of its subjects and of the filmmakers themselves.”
COMMON SENSE MEDIA

After five years of war in Syria, the remaining citizens of Aleppo are getting ready for a siege. Through the volunteers from the White Helmets we experience the daily life, death and struggle in the streets, where they are fighting for sanity in a city where war has become the norm. Khalid, Subhi and Mahmoud are among the first to enter the destroyed buildings, scouring through the rubble in search of bodies and signs of life. They are now living more or less under constant bombing together with the remaining 350,000 civilians in Aleppo. They all struggle with the same dilemma: should they flee and bring their families to safety, or should they stay and fight for their city?

 

Please note: Last Men in Aleppo is restricted to persons aged 15 and over unless accompanied by an adult.
