The Cave

SUPPORT
Arizona

From National Geographic Documentary Films (Free Solo; Jane), Oscar-nominated filmmaker Feras Fayyad (Last Men in Aleppo) delivers an unflinching story of the Syrian war with the powerful new documentary, The Cave.
For besieged civilians, hope and safety lie underground inside the subterranean hospital known as The Cave, where 30 year-old pediatrician and managing physician Dr. Amani Ballor and her female colleagues have claimed their right to work as equals alongside their male counterparts, doing their jobs in a way that would be unthinkable in what’s left of the oppressively patriarchal culture that exists above. Following the women as they contend with daily bombardments, chronic supply shortages, and the ever-present threat of chemical attacks, The Cave paints a stirring portrait of courage, resilience and female solidarity. (Dir. by Feras Fayyad, 2019, Syria/Denmark/Germany/USA/Qatar, in Arabic/English with English subtitles, 95 mins., Rated PG-13)
