The district of Yarmouk, Damascus, sheltered the world's biggest Palestinian refugee camp, until the Assad regime began a siege in 2013. Abdallah Al-Khatib filmed the ensuing years from within Yarmouk, as the besieged inhabitants face horrors with rallies, music, love and joy.
On Friday the 28th of January we hosted a Q&A with director Abdallah Al-Khatib. Hosted by filmmaker Yasmin Feeda. Translated by Zaina Erhaim.
