Castlemaine Documentary Festival: Q&A with Oscar nominated director, Feras Fayyad

Following the screening of this powerful Oscar nominated film, we are very proud to have its Syrian director Feras Fayyad live on stage in conversation with prominent Melbourne journalist and filmmaker Santilla Chingaipe.  

Combining moments of heart-pounding suspense, tragedy, and improbable beauty, this visceral film takes us right into the lives of three men from Aleppo who race against time to dig their fellow citizens out from buildings that have been bombed. Filmed over 3 years, we see Khaled, Subhi and Mahmoud grapple with the never-ending chaos around them, and struggle with an ever-present personal dilemma: do they flee with their families or stay and fight for their country.

To book,
