National Geographic has added Feras Fayyad’s “The Cave,” the latest non-fiction effort from the director of Oscar-nominated “Last Men in Aleppo,” to its 2019 feature documentary slate.
The new film will be released in theaters this fall and compete in an increasingly crowded documentary feature field for the Oscar.
“The Cave” unveils the harrowing true story of an underground Syrian hospital and the team of civilians and medical professionals led by women who risk their lives to provide medical care to the besieged local population of Al Ghouta.
