When slaughterhouse workers Endre and Mária discover they share the same dreams - where they meet in a forest as deer and fall in love - they decide to make their dreams come true but it's difficult in real life.
After five years of war in Syria, Aleppo's remaining residents prepare themselves for a siege. Khalid, Subhi and Mahmoud, founding members of The White Helmets, have remained in the city to help their fellow citizens-and experience daily life, death, struggle and triumph in a city under fire.
This documentary's earned its Academy Award nomination.
This impressive documentary is deserving of an Oscar nomination. What caught my eye is the word "Aleppo," the Syrian city that's been under attack by numerous people ever since. Maybe the fact this documentary is about the Syrian civil war got me watching this documentary on Netflix first (It has 2 other feature documentaries available to view.) could assure the Oscar win. "Last Men In Aleppo" follows some Syrian rescue workers identified as "White Helmets" & showcases these men as humans--husbands and fathers taking care of their families but also saving living citizens & recovering the dead, both caught in the bombing of the city. Also the rescue workers struggle with the conflict of leaving Syria to find better lives for themselves & their families. As an American safely observing the Syrian warfare on the news, I cannot take for granted my own country & my liberties & privileges as the White Helmets of Aleppo see death & war as a regular part of their lives.
