ZAATARI DJINN

Information on the activity

November 11, 2017 to November 12, 2017

As part of RIDM

Located in the heart of Jordan, 80% of the Zaatari Syrian refugee camp’s population are children. Amidst makeshift tents and scorching sand, they invent games and have extraordinarily imaginative dreams. Dutch director Catherine van Campen, whose Flying Anne (best short film, RIDM 2011) revealed her talent for entering the private world of children, followed four Zaatari children. Ferras is only 10 but works hard, and is troubled by his father’s remarriage. Fatma loves makeup and roosters, while Miryam wants to be an actress. And rich Hammoudi treasures nothing more than his soon-to-be-born little brother. All teach us remarkable lessons in resilience.
