    Together with my partner Philip Brink, I went to Lebanon to collect and share stories of the Syrian refugees living in Lebanon. Nowadays this country counts 1.500.000 Syrians on a population of 4.000.000 Lebanese. We also gave our FB-friends the opportunity to be part of our journey by posting questions for Syrians. The answers to these questions can be found in 12 short films. The short films, photo stories, written interviews and more information can be seen here: http://www.mariekevandervelden.com/#/outside-syria/ Made in March 2015.

        The curtain comes down. It is the end of a performance. But “when the play ends, what remains? When the play ends, what begins?” (Rustom Bharucha). What changes through theatre? This short documentary sheds light on the transformational power of performance and specifically looks on how circus and theatre can be used by refugees as a platform for social change. I invite you to follow the stories of Fiston Barek and Karoki Mahmodi, former refugees from Burundi and Iran who share their experience of how performing changed their lives.

          • Batoor: A Refugee Journey Trailer [1x90min / 2x45min]- 3 Min

            Barat Ali Batoor was once Afghanistan’s most esteemed photographer working for the United States Embassy in Kabul. But in 2011, all this changed when The Washington Post published his potent photo essay exposing one of Afghanistan’s darkest secrets – the brutal trade in young ‘dancing boys’ for the purposes of entertainment and forced prostitution. Distancing themselves from the ensuing controversy, Batoor was cut loose by his employers with no security. With death threats looming over his head, he allowed himself to be smuggled out of the country into dangerous territory, opening the door to the question of whether these agents serve a purpose in preserving human rights as well. He embarked on a journey that would see him cross three continents, be trafficked over multiple borders, survive a shipwreck in the open seas, become lost in the jungles of Indonesia, escape from imprisonment and spend months living undercover as an illegal immigrant before finally being granted refugee status in Australia. Remarkably, he photographed and filmed his entire journey, creating a stunning record of life spent on the run – in a dangerous world of asylum seekers, people smuggling and cross border trafficking. Through his first-person account, BATOOR retraces and revisits the sites and people from his journey, presenting the harrowing steps many refugees take in their pursuit of better lives.
