Last Men in AleppoReviewer: Ruben Schönefeld
Watching a war in the news for so many years, it's in sometimes difficult to remember that it's not only clear-cut front lines with two warring parties fighting one another. The Syrian civil war is one of those examples in which the civilian population very obviously suffers a great deal and groups like the White Helmets, a volunteer team does their best to try to pull people out from under the rubble of their bombed neighborhoods. This documentary is so close to the nightmare these people are going through that it's almost unbelievable that they were able to make it in the first place. It's really difficult to watch and is one of those movies that will make you reflect on your own problems and issues and appreciate how good we have it to live in peace.
