For Sama

Hospital care and daily life in Allepo, Syria.

I watched this in rapt, riveted attention today. Harrowing, heartbreaking, brilliantly and courageously done.

FOR SAMA is both an intimate and epic journey into the female experience of war. A love letter from a young mother to her daughter, the film tells the story of Waad al-Kateab’s life through five years of the uprising in Aleppo, Syria as she falls in love, gets married and gives birth to Sama, all while cataclysmic conflict rises around her.

Her camera captures incredible stories of loss, laughter and survival as Waad wrestles with an impossible choice– whether or not to flee the city to protect her daughter’s life, when leaving means abandoning the struggle for freedom for which she has already sacrificed so much...
If you have any soul, this film will leave you rattled. Wiki entry here.


A number of my delusional fellow citizens never tire of dressing up and arming up with military weaponry to pose as "patriot" paramilitaries, most recently by invading the Kentucky statehouse, to "protest," via show-of-force intimidation, pending gun control legislation.

I'd be shipping these American ISIS wannabe clowns off to Syria so they can truly show off their Stones.
