Les chebabs de Yarmouk
The Shebabs of Yarmouk

Axel Salvatori-Sinz | 78' | 2013 | France

Ala'a Hassan, Samer, Tasneem and Waed, Palestinian refugees from the third generation in Syria, are at the threshold of their adult lives. Torn between their desire for exile and their commitment to their group of friends, they try to escape boredom in the refugee camp, as well as lack of freedom in their host country. Some are organizing their future departures abroad, others are waiting for enrolment in the compulsory military service. Stuck on the roofs of the over fifty-year old camp, these young men and women share the concerns specific to their generation.
