For Sama: Waad-al-Kateab - the woman who made the world cry

For Sama is a unique film

When Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons on the Syrian people, you saw it because Waad al-Kateab saw it.

For Sama has won many major awards since its first screening at SXSW in the US earlier this year - including winning best Feature Documentary at Cannes at the end of May.

We spoke to its director about the experiences of war and creating a rare story of conflict told through the eyes of a woman.
