CIFF Selects to screen ‘Last Men in Aleppo,’ Feb. 28
CAMDEN — On Wednesday, Febuary 28 CIFF Selects will present Syrian filmmaker Feras Fayyad's breathtaking work Last Men in Aleppo. The film has been nominated for a 2018 Academy Award, and is the first Syrian produced and directed film that has received an Oscar nomination.
According to a release from CIFF, the Documentary film is a searing example of boots-on-the-ground reportage, and follows the efforts of the internationally recognized White Helmets, an organization consisting 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. Last Men in Aleppo draws viewers 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?
Tickets are $10 and will be available for purchase at the Camden Opera House Box Office starting at 6 p.m. on the night of the screening.
