In recognition of the International Day of Solidarity with Palestine on Thursday 29 November 2018, the FNCC brings you a documentary from the heart of Palestine.

Ala’a Hassan, Samer, Tasneem, and Wead, third-generation Palestinian refugees living in the Syrian Yarmouk camp, have been forming the Chebab group since adolescence.  With his camera, Axel Salvatori-Sinz films these young people in doubt, as to their choice for the future, as their navigate their loyalty to one another and the desire to escape their collective realities.

Ala’a Hassan, Samer, Tasneem, et Wead, réfugiés palestiniens de la troisième génération vivant dans le camp syrien de Yarmouk, forment depuis l’adolescence le groupe des “Chebabs”.  Avec une caméra complice, Axel Salvatori-Sinz filme ces jeunes gens en proie au doute, quant à leur choix de vie future, tendu entre la fidelité amicale et le desir de prendre son envol parfois loin des autres.
