Video: “Homeless in Shatila”

The anarchist film collective “a-films” presents a short video on refugees from the destroyed refugee camp of Nahr al-Bared who are stranded in Shatila Camp, Beirut. The conflict in Nahr al-Bared between the Lebanese army and Fatah al-Islam militants left homeless tens of thousands of Palestinians. Under fire and assuming they could soon return to the camp after their flight, most of them didn’t taken any of their belongings with them. While Baddawi Camp near Trablous (Tripoli), northern Lebanon, is hosting the majority of those who fled, thousands of the camp’s residents are scattered all over other Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon.

a-films is currently conducting video workshops in Baddawi Camp in northern Lebanon as well as in Bourj al-Shamali Camp and Siddiqine village in the south of the country. Please check the collective’s website for further videos and for this video translated into different languages:
