After Spring

Irish Film Institute

The Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan was set up in 2012, one year after Syria broke out in violent evolution, and is now the largest Syrian refugee camp in the world with 80,000 inhabitants, over half of which are children. It is a virtual city with thriving markets and restaurants – even boasting its own twitter feed.

With an approach that is more humanist than political, co-directors Steph Ching and Ellen Martinez emphasise the daily routines of those living in the camp in a documentary that puts a face to a tragedy too immense to comprehend, proving that even in the direst of circumstances life must go on.
