Ketermaya

Ketermaya’s children are Syrian refugees. They fled fighting, chemical weapons and chaos, walking into Lebanon over a dusty mountain range. Today they live in a makeshift camp, where Lebanese landowner Ali allows them to stay and maintains a kind of order. What are the hopes and dreams of this generation of Syrian children, who have lost so much? They show us what life, education and play are like - and the very meaning of resilience.

Ketermaya I documentary teaser

On a dusty hillside surrounded by olive trees, the children of Ketermaya play far away from the horrors of Syria. But life in the Lebanese refugee camp is far from easy. Disrupted educations, the loss of loved ones, and the scars of war and chemical weapons weigh heavily in this extraordinary portrait of family and childhood innocence. An important corrective to narratives surrounding refugees, and a moving fable of hope and resilience in unimaginable circumstances
