For Sama presented in partnership with Fresh Perspectives

Archive Film at Fabrica (24 May 2022, 7.00pm - 10.30pm)
A directorial debut, For Sama is both an intimate and epic journey into the female experience of war. Dedicated as a love letter from a young mother to her daughter, the film provides a moving documentation of horror and hope through a first-hand account of the Syrian civil war.
Fresh Perspectives selected For Sama in response to Fabrica’s spring exhibition, Journeys From An Absent Present to a Lost Past by Mohamad Hafez, focusing on themes of longing for home.

The film presents a female Syrian activist living in Syria which provides a complementary perspective to Hafez’s position away from home.
