This Monday saw the UK Premiere of The Cave at LFF and there was a full house and, dare we say, probably not a dry eye in it. After the screening, the film has garnered extremely positive feedback, and people have been moved - to anger, to sadness, to action.
The Cave, from director Feras Fayyad (Last Men in Aleppo), is an unflinching social indictment and sensitive character study, set in a Syrian subterranean hospital nicknamed ‘The Cave’. The necessary watch follows a dedicated team of female doctors who tirelessly treat casualties from airstrikes above, while battling systemic sexism.
In attendance from the team at the Q&A were (L-R): Denniz Gol Bertelsen (Editor), Per K. Kirkegaard (Editor), Sigrid Dyekjæ (Producer), Alisar Hasan (Writer) and her daughter, Kirstine Barfod (Producer) and Peter Albrechtsen (Composer)
