Shot over 18 months on the borders of Syria, this film tells the story behind the news reports and is a reflection of the strange, chaotic lives of the people living in the shadow of the Syrian catastrophe. It is an intimate look at how four Syrians whose collective struggles constitute the new frontline of the refugee crisis as they try to find ways to overcome the torment of their shattered lives.
Lost in Lebanon is not the story of the war in Syria, nor is it an account of those who have made the journey to Europe: It is the next chapter. What is happening to the 12 million who have been displaced but have absolutely nowhere to go? What are their hopes, their fears, their future?
"This is a moving, galvanising work that tackles this horrific humanitarian crisis with a fresh eye and ear." Leslie Felperin - The Guardian
'If anyone needs human faces in order to give a shit about what's going on in Syria, this film is the answer. You see the light gradually extinguish in people's eyes. And yet, they continue. The resilience and courage is inspiring and heartbreaking.' Nan Bauer - Mubi
