The Shebabs of Yarmouk
Directed by Axel Salvatori-Sinz / France 2013 / 78 min
Ala'a Hassan, Samer, Tasneem and Waed are third-generation Palestinian refugees living in the Syrian camp at Yarmouk. They are part of “Les Chebabs”, a group they formed in their teenage years. With his observant camera in tow, Axel Salvatori-Sinz films these young people haunted by doubts about their future life choices, caught between loyalty to their friends and a desire to take flight, sometimes leaving the others far behind.
