The Center for Global Health and Global Health Student Association invite you a film night featuring “The White Helmets,” a Netflix original short documentary, set in Aleppo, Syria and Turkey in early 2016. As the violence intensifies, three volunteer rescue workers put everything on the line to save civilians affected by the war, all the while wracked with worry about the safety of their own loved ones. Moving and inspiring, The White Helmets is both a snapshot of the harrowing realities of life for ordinary Syrians who remain in the country, and a humbling portrait of the power of the human spirit.
