The never-ending war in Syria has destroyed everything. Although Aleppo is in ruins, some of its residents have remained. Candid camera shots record the daily routine of the members of the White Helmets, who try to rescue people trapped beneath the rubble. But for how long can a dead city be kept alive? – Last Men in Aleppo received the Grand Jury Prize at last year’s Sundance Film Festival. (source: Ji.hlava IDFF)
