Another Kind of Girl

Year2015 Duration9 min. DirectorKhaldiya Jibawi

Thanks to Khaldiya, aged 17, we have the chance to visit the Za’atari refugee camp in Jordan, a sea of tarpaulin and prefabricated houses that spreads out beyond any horizon. “When I’m filming, I feel important”, she confesses. Her film diary presents the added richness of splitting her voice and imagining the near future from the present. We also see certain positive changes taking place in the refugee camp: children become more active, they start to play with just their hands, with no toys, they are no longer afraid of the dark, and they find more friends… but… once again, the moon, with its great final mystery.
