Oscar-nominated Documentary 'For Sama' is a Moving Account of Life During Syria's War
Only on the "CBS This Morning" podcast, Syrian refugee and filmmaker Waad al-Kateab discusses her Oscar-nominated documentary "For Sama" with CBS News' Anne-Marie Green. Al-Kateab shares how she began filming protests against President Bashar al-Assad's government as a university student — before being thrust into a revolution for freedom. During the five year siege eastern Aleppo, al-Kateab fell in love, got married, had a child and helped run a hospital for the civilians injured from the constant bombardment. Al-Kateab calls the Frontline film a "love letter" to her daughter, Sama.
