Salam Neighbor

“Salam Neighbor” by Janet Tobias

Thursday 6 July, 19:00 (Cinéma Gallerie)

Runtime: 75′

Salam Neighbor is an award-winning film and campaign to connect the world to refugees. Two Americans deliberately head to the edge of war, just seven miles from the Syrian border, to live among 80,000 uprooted refugees in Jordan’s Za’atari refugee camp. As the first filmmakers allowed by the United Nations to register and set-up a tent inside a refugee camp, Zach and Chris plunge into the heart of the world’s most pressing humanitarian crisis. From meeting Um Ali, a woman struggling to overcome personal loss and cultural barriers, to the street smart, 10-year-old Raouf, whose trauma hides just beneath his ever present smile, Zach and Chris uncover inspiring stories of individuals rallying, against all odds, to rebuild their lives and those of their neighbours.
