Oscar nominee Feras Fayyad (“Last Men in Aleppo”) delivers an unflinching story of the Syrian war with his powerful new documentary, The Cave. For besieged civilians, hope and safety lie underground inside the subterranean hospital known as the Cave, where pediatrician and managing physician Dr. Amani Ballour and her colleagues Samaher and Dr. Alaa have claimed their right to work as equals alongside their male counterparts, doing their jobs in a way that would be unthinkable in 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.
“Miraculous…A standout. Feras Fayyad’s powerful portrait audaciously puts women’s imperative contribution to survival front and center.” – TOMRIS LAFFLY, VARIETY
“Emotionally Moving…extraordinary visual grace…both intensely real and a carefully wrought work of cinema.” – CARYN JAMES, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“Gripping. Unprecedented. A real-time thriller…Fayyas excels at finding small moments that take on poetic resonance.” – ERIC KOHN, INDIEWIRE
