Introducing

“The documentary genre has developed incredibly quickly in the last 20 years. Before there was only one way to make documentaries. Now we have plenty of tools: animation, voice over … It becomes more like cinema – that is to say, a film that people want to see, which is not too frozen.” Abdallah Al-Khatib

Synopsis

Following the Syrian Revolution, Bashar Al-Assad's regime besieges the district of Yarmouk (Damascus), the largest Palestinian refugee camp in the world. Yarmouk then finds itself cut off from the rest of the world, and the director records the daily deprivations while celebrating the courage of the inhabitants.
