Please join us for the second of our three-part film series about the global refugee crisis —its tragic scale and impact. Our film, Last Men of Aleppo, is a piercing documentary about the Syrian civil war – being showcased to illuminate the chaos and conflict beyond our water’s edge which forces so many to flee their homes. This film portrays a group of ordinary citizens - the White Helmets - who conduct lifesaving search and rescue missions for their neighbors under siege in Aleppo. It won the World Documentary Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and was nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the 90th Academy Awards. 

The film will be complemented by a panel of experts who will help explain the tension between fleeing one’s country or staying to fight for it.
