“A masterpiece” – The Guardian

“This is an essential film…moviegoers will ask what they can do to help. This picture doesn’t offer hope; its aim is to compel us to create some.” – The New York Times

“[The White Helmets] are some of the most amazing people you will ever see on the screen.” – Film Comment

Winner of the Grand Jury Documentary prize at the Sundance Film Festival, Syrian filmmaker Feras Fayyad’s breathtaking work – a searing example of boots-on-the-ground reportage – follows the efforts of the internationally recognized White Helmets, an organization comprised of ordinary citizens who are the first to rush towards military strikes and attacks in the hope of saving lives. Incorporating moments of both heart-pounding suspense and improbable beauty, the documentary draws us into the lives of three of its founders – Khaled, Subhi, and Mahmoud – as they grapple with the chaos around them and struggle with an ever-present dilemma: do they flee or stay and fight for their country [synopsis courtesy Grasshopper Film].

The film will be followed by a short Q&A. Joining us will be Ahed Festuk, an activist from Aleppo. Ahed was one of the first to join the peaceful uprising and later worked in a hospital in Aleppo. She came to the US in 2015, where she continues to advocate for a free and democratic Syria. She will be joined by Anna Nolan, the Co-Director of The Syria Campaign who has worked supporting the White Helmets since 2014.

Dir. Feras Fayyad. 2017. 110 min.
