these days, a-films released a 20-minutes film produced by refugees from the destroyed nahr al-bared camp during a video-workshop in beddawi refugee camp near trablous, north lebanon. for two weeks, a-films has trained a group of refugees in filmmaking.

"tragedy without borders" focusses on the hard conditions that nahr al-bared refugees are facing in their temporary exile in beddawi camp. many of them experience a ramadan of hardship and sadness. living since four months in overcrowded schools, mosques and and in overpriced flats and garages, they tell about their daily life and their memories of their destroyed refugee camp. the refugees explain their perceptions of their future and their hopes of returning to the ruins of nahr al-bared.
