Film from Nahr al-Bared Camp in Lebanon: Transitions
14 Nov 2008
More than a year after their homes were destroyed during the battle between the Lebanese army and the militant islamist group Fatah al-Islam, the majority of the refugees from Nahr al-Bared in North Lebanon find themselves in a difficult situation. Not able to return to their homes, stuck in pre-fabricated housing units and often unemployed, many of them feel frustrated and hopeless, only sometimes seeing a glimmer of hope.
Film from Nahr al-Bared Camp (Lebanon): "Transitions"
Being subjected to aid organizations and external political decisions, many refugees have started to critizice the humanitarization of their political problem and voice opposition to the politics of humanitarian aid.

This short film, produced in October 2008, documents the experiences and thoughts of several young residents of Nahr al-Bared Camp, as they talk about current developments in the camp and about their personal situation.

The film can be watched and/or downloaded at:
