See "After the Spring," "Here You Are, "A Man Returned," "The Pianist From Yarmouk" and "Through My Eyes: Hani's JOurney." Far from a one-size-fits-all marking of “experience” so often depicted on Western media outlets when it comes to the plight of refugees, this program of 5 powerful short documentaries spotlights the multitude of hues that should be considered when discussions of the refugee experience are had. From the Yarmouk and Ain El-Hilweh camps, to the streets of Berlin: Refugee Stories shows what it takes to hold onto one’s dreams amidst devastating circumstances. All film details here.
