Last Men in Aleppo (De Sidste Mænd i Aleppo)

Part of the Documentaries Strand

Body

The shocking story of Khalid, Subhi, and Mahmoud: founding members of the Syrian Civil Defence (The White Helmets), battling to save lives amid the devastating effects of the 2016 siege of Aleppo. A harrowing but utterly essential watch, this award-winning documentary goes beyond the boundaries of mere reportage to delve deep into the everyday tragedies of the siege. As the White Helmets carry out their most horrific of tasks, stunning vignettes of a city in tatters are a pointed reminder of the real victims of war.
