The Cave, a documentary about female doctors in Syria, has been nominated for an Oscar, marking director Feras Fayyad’s second nomination.

On its official IMDB page, the film is described as about a group of female doctors in Syria who “struggle with systemic sexism while trying to care for the injured using limited resources”.

The Cave premiered at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival, where it won the People’s Choice Award for Documentaries.

It has been nominated in the category of Documentary Feature at the 2020 Oscar Awards and is up against American Factory, The Edge of Democracy, For Sama and Honeyland.

The Cave is a Syrian-Danish released as a companion piece to Last Men in Aleppo, Fayyad’s 2017 film, which was also nominated for an Oscar.
