TKKF: 194. Us, children of the camp


Event has passed.

Directed by Samer Salameh

Syria, Lebanon, 2017, documentary, 90 mins., Arabic with English and Lithuanian subtitles

Samer grew up in the biggest and oldest camps for Palestinian refugees in Damascus, Yarmouk. In 2011 he is forced to join the Palestine Liberation Army in Syria, while the revolution explodes in Damascus. He starts filming and his friends also start recording all the pivotal moments of their day-to-day lives. What emerges little by little from a personal story, that of the film director, in the form of a haphazard diary, is the story of a group of friends, a neighbourhood, and a stateless people. Over the images taken on the fly in the army, overjoyed scenes of happy moments, testimonies of anger in the tumult of the demonstrations, wandering over arid land, in search of a non-existent way out. An intimate story becomes a collective history of destruction and absurdity of war.

About the director:

Samer Salameh was born in Syria and grew up in the Yarmouk camp, Damascus. Since a young age, Samer has been active in the field of dramatic and visual arts. After participating in several theatre plays and short films in Damascus, Samer started filming the world around him. In 2008 and 2009, Samer produced his first two independent films narrating the story of Palestinian refugees who had fled Iraq. Since then, Samer has continued directing and editing films, focusing particularly on the events that took place in his native Yarmouk.
