One year has passed since the first Palestinians were allowed to return to the outskirts of the destroyed Nahr al-Bared refugee camp, to the so-called "new camp". Meanwhile, up to 15.000 people have resettled there, many of them waiting to access their destroyed homes in the "old camp", the core of what used to be Nahr al-Bared Camp. The Lebanese army still exclusively controls the old camp as well as parts of the new camp.

Nahr al-Bared Camp used to be an economic center in the north of Trablous. Although the first shops and companies have reopened in Nahr al-Bared, they struggle with difficult economic conditions such as the siege of the camp.

This 16-minute film was produced in a small workshop in the camp. It deals with the current developments in Nahr al-Bared, focusing on economic aspects and on reconstruction.

The film can be watched and/or downloaded here:
