Videos Narrating Syrian Refugee Stories in Lebanon

Menapolis produced feature stories on Syrian refugees living in Lebanon. They were later aired on France 24 Arabic.


The first video highlights “The Lahza” project, which worked with Syrian refugee children in the Bekaa, Lebanon. To understand the struggles of the refugees, 500 children were given cameras to record their lives their own lenses. Children took pictures of reality with no goal but the shots they chose to take. The goal was to break the repetitive image on the refugees since the outbreak of the Syrian crisis.



The second feature story narrates the story of Um-Ali, a Syrian refugee from Aleppo, who in accordance with other Syrians, sets up a coop to make food for Lebanese restaurants. Despite her successes in Lebanon, she yearns to be back in her home, Syria.
