The 2019 IDA Documentary Screening Series brings this year’s most acclaimed documentaries to industry insiders and film lovers as a series of curated film screenings through the fall season! Join in a free screening of ‘The Cave’ on Wednesday 10/2 at the The Landmark at 7:30PM.
For besieged civilians, hope and safety lie underground inside the subterranean hospital known as Cave, where pediatrician and managing physician Dr. Amani Ballor and her colleagues Samaher and Dr. Alaa have claimed their rights to work as equals alongside their male counterparts, doing their jobs in a way that would be unthinkable in the oppressively patriarchal culture that exists above. Following the women as they contend with daily bombardments, chronic supply shortages and the ever-present threat of chemical attack, THE CAVE paints a stirring portrait of courage, resilience and female solidarity.
The screening will be followed by a moderated discussion with Director Feras Fayyad and a reception at the Landmark Wine Bar.
