Tuesday 14 April: For Sama Live with Waad al-Kateab & Edward Watts

Tuesday, April 7, 2020

Join us for a live ‘watch party’ of BIFA and BAFTA-winning documentary FOR SAMA with directors Waad al-Kateab and Edward Watts!


On Tuesday 14 April, starting at at 7:20pm, we will all watch FOR SAMA together on the Channel 4 website and listen to Waad and Edward’s commentary on their film.


After the film is finished, we will stay online for a Q&A with the directors.


Commentary / Q&A

The commentary / Q&A will take place via Zoom Webinars. This means that you will need to either:
– Have Zoom downloaded onto your computer (see here) and have it open at the same time as the film
– Have Zoom open on one device (e.g. phone, tablet etc.) and the film open on another (e.g. TV, laptop etc.)


The Zoom Webinars link will be shared with you once you have signed up to the event through this link: REGISTER


For Sama

FOR SAMA is available on the Channel 4 website here: https://www.channel4.com/programmes/for-sama

We would strongly recommend that you watch the film once before the event next Tuesday! Like watching a commentary track on the DVD extras, it’s best if you are already familiar with the film.
