Power of Protest Film Series: Last Men in Aleppo
December 16, 2019 –
Screening Last Men in Aleppo (2017) (Directed by Ferras Fayyad)
Description: "After five years of war in Syria, the remaining citizens of Aleppo are getting ready for a siege. Through the eyes of volunteer rescue workers called the White Helmets, Last Men in Aleppo allows viewers to experience the daily life, death, and struggle in the streets, where they are fighting for sanity in a city where war has become the norm." Brett Bossard, Executive Director of Cinemapolis in Ithaca, will moderate the discussion: asking audiences about the ways that the very act of survival, defiance in the face of almost assured death and destruction, is a protest in and of itself.
