Born in Syria

Since the beginning of the civil war in Syria in 2011, about 9 million Syrians have left their land; half of them are children. "Born in Syria" tracks the path of seven children for a year.

Through their eyes, we see their lives since fleeing from Syria, through the refugee camps in the Middle East, until their arrival to the promised land - Europe - where the documentary continues to follow them during their first six months there.

“Born in Syria” is a unique testimony of the refugee experience.
