We are organising a group from New Inclusive Church to go along to Screen B14 and Kings Heath Action for Refugee’s screening of Oscar-nominated documentary, For Sama. Tickets are limited and available for purchase via the above link. Contact Joel Wilson (from NIC) with any questions.

Please be sure you have read the summary of the film below before booking a ticket as the subject matter is challenging.

About For Sama …
In this love letter from a young mother to her daughter, follow director Waad al-Kateab, through 5 years of her life in Syria. We’ll watch as she experiences the uprising in Aleppo alongside falling in love, getting married and giving birth to her daughter, Sama. With the backdrop of this ongoing conflict, Waad must make a difficult decision – whether or not to leave her city, abandoning the struggle for freedom for the sake of her daughter. Make sure you bring your tissues to this screening!

Alongside this film, there maybe be a discussion to follow, or our group will move to a nearby coffee lounge to discuss.

This screening is a fundraiser for Kings Heath Action for Refugees and profits from the sale of tickets for this screening will be donated to the group.

{Main feature will be subtitled for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing}

Bring a cushion for extra comfort!!
