Zaatari Djinn

Documentary, 2016, 91 min.

Release date: November 2016 (Netherlands). In the middle of the Jordanian desert, under the scorching sun, a whole new town has arisen. A town that for eighty percent consists of children: the refugee camp Zaatari. From the perspective of four children, this documentary shows what it is like to grow up here. The taciturn Ferras (10) works hard, the assertive Fatma (12) has a rooster for a friend, the devout Miryam (15) falls in love with Shakespeare and the rich Hammoudi (8) can buy what he wants. An intimate film about the resilience of children.
