A love letter from a young mother to her daughter, “For Sama” chronicles the experiences of Syrian filmmaker Waad al-Kateab — who, starting at 26, began filming her life in the rebel-held city of Aleppo over five years. Following its theatrical release in the summer of 2019, a broadcast version is slated to premiere both on FRONTLINE (PBS) in the U.S. and internationally on Channel 4 later in the year.

“For Sama” is the first feature documentary by Emmy award-winning filmmakers, Waad al-Kateab and Edward Watts. For more visit,
