Project Description

The Cave

  • OSCAR nominated for Best Documentary

  • GOLDEN REEL nominated for Best Sound

Thomas Pape was part of the international team, crafting the sound design for this documentary film directed by Feras Fayyad. Working directly with sound designer Peter Albrechtsen editing sound effects, and preparing the session for Dolby Atmos mix in Skywalker sound studios by Tim Nielsen.

SYNOPSIS:
For the besieged Syrian civilians, hope and safety lie underground, inside the subterranean hospital known as the Cave, where pediatrician and managing physician Dr. Amani Ballour and her colleagues Samaher and Dr. Alaa have claimed their right to work as equals alongside their male counterparts, doing their jobs in a way that would be unthinkable in the oppressively patriarchal culture that exists above. Following the women as they contend with daily bombardments, chronic supply shortages and the ever-present threat of chemical attacks, the film paints a stirring portrait of courage, resilience and female solidarity.
