Year2015 Duration5 min. DirectorMarah Al Hassan

Marah, aged 15, presents the only observational piece in this series of short films by girl refugees, with no dialogue. Her collection of postcards of a childhood lived on a terrain that appears to negate her is a note of optimism. The precariousness of life in a refugee camp becomes a space for recreation, and in this wilderness, child’s play deploys all its tools for survival. Puddles are swimming pools, plastic bags become makeshift kites. Behind this drama, a great truth: a child is never alone.
