“The Cave” is a powerful war story that follows a dedicated team of female doctors who tirelessly treat casualties in an underground medical facility.
Director Feras Fayyad (“Last Men in Aleppo”) delivers an unflinching story of his native home Ghouta and the Syrian war. For besieged civilians, hope and safety lie underground inside the subterranean hospital known as the Cave. Here 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 women as they contend with daily bombardments, systematic sexism, chronic supply shortages and the ever-present threat of chemical attacks, “The Cave” paints a stirring portrait of courage, resilience and female solidarity. [US, 2019, Arabic with English subtitles, 95 minutes, Rating: PG-13].
