An intimate look at life in a Syrian refugee camp.
I previously wrote about the doc for Nantucket’s program, saying:
More than four million people have fled Syria in the wake of civil war. Many have ended up at the Zaatari refugee camp, seven miles across the border in Jordan, which now houses 80,000 Syrians, more than half of them children. Though Zaatari was built as a temporary haven, as war rages on, refugees reluctantly begin to see it as home, complete with a bustling economy and a sense of community that reflects its inhabitants’ resilience. Martinez and Ching immerse viewers in camp life by profiling two families and several aid workers attempting to make the best of the present while facing an uncertain future.
