Safezone

United States | 2017 | 9 min | Arabic | Jodie Livingston, Marco Bollinger

When her family fled, one Syrian refugee girl found solace and safety song. Fatima and her family were caught in the crossfire: A missile hit their home in Bab Amr, and they were rescued from beneath the rubble. After a period of moving from town to town and sleeping in their car, the family found their way to Lebanon’s Beqaa Valley, where they built a tent to live in from salvaged wood and canvas.

Now Fatima, 12, attends school and enjoys music class, but she still sometimes wakes up screaming in the night and fears that war will chase her to Lebanon, removing her from the safe zone she has found at school.
