DIRECTOR: FERAS FAYYAD

Syrian filmmaker Feras Fayyad in collaboration with Aleppo Media Center filmed the Syrian war for two years, which led to this breathtaking work, an imperative piece of boots-on-the-ground reportage following the exploits of the White Helmets, a search and rescue organization who indefatigably struggle on amidst Aleppo’s humanitarian catastrophe, looking for signs of life amid the rubble of a ruined city. Displaying remarkable calm and compositional clarity amidst chaos, Last Men in Aleppo embodies the agony and euphoria of its subject’s life and death work. Director Feras Fayyad and Co-Director Steen Johannessen will appear in person. EFP Member: Danish Film Institute
