Summary, etc.:
"From the acclaimed filmmaker Feras Fayyad ('Last Men in Aleppo') comes the powerful film The Cave, Oscar Nominee for Best Documentary Feature, and a stirring portraid of courage, resilience and female solidarity. For besieged civilians in wartorn Syria, hope and safety lie underground inside the subterranean hospital known as the Cave, where pediatrician and managing physician Dr. Amani Ballour and her colleagues Samaher and Dr. Alaa have claimed their right 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 team as they contend with daily bombardment, chronic supply shortages and the ever-present threat of chemical attacks, The Cave delivers an unflinching look at the Syrian war and some of its heroic women"--Container.
