For Sama ★★★★★

Harrowing, devastating and beautiful all at once. The most I've cried during a movie in ages. It hit me especially hard having an 11-month-old after having lost a daughter several years ago. Waad al-Kateab finds hope amid the constant bombardment of Aleppo. Some extremely graphic scenes make this a tough watch but it really is essential viewing.
