Inside Aleppo : A New Life In a Deadly City

Warning: this film contains graphic and distressing scenes inside the operating theatre. The film-maker Waad Al Katib is in Aleppo, to document the suffering of its people caught up in the siege and under regular bombardment. This film focuses on one woman – Mayissa – who, at nine months’ pregnant, was injured in one of those airstrikes. But it features, too, the phenomenal dedication and skill of the ill-equipped doctors and nurses in the city’s hospitals – who battle to save both her, and her baby’s life.
