Reclaiming Childhood

While living in of Lebanon’s refugee camps I gave photo and video workshops as a way to help the kids express themselves, to find passion and normalcy within the camp by sharing their experience. I wanted to get to know them better, but also I wanted the the documentary film I was making about children reclaiming their childhood to be more of a collaboration – to bring their imagery, storytelling, and creativity straight into the film I had to first teach them how to shoot. These images tell the story of our connection and time together.
