The work is okay. It’s not a problem, but I would love to have any opportunity to go back to Syria. I miss my school and the shop I used to work in.

SULIMANIYAH, Iraq, December 2013 —The Tasloga restaurant is the only checkpoint that connects the town of Sulimaniyah in eastern Iraqi Kurdistan, to points south. Trucks pass through here from as far away as Saudi Arabia. Ahmed’s 13-hour day starts at eight in the morning. He makes salads, serves tea and clears tables. He is 14 years old. Ahmed arrived from Syria with his family ten months ago, driven out by the conflict. Five months ago he got a job in the restaurant...

It’s a wrap! The OneMinutesJr. Amman workshop wrapped up on the 5th day with a great final screening, but not before a lot of editing time. The last day was spent editing all 17 films the kids had filmed over the last few days. Video artists, Taatske and Olivia, made rough cuts to all the films based on the storyboards from the shoots. Each participant sat with one of the two artists to finalize, edit, cut it down to one minute and choose titles and music (if necessary)....

Filming and editing were non-stop on the last 2 days of the workshop. On the 4th day, we started out by driving to Baqa’a camp. Baqa’a began as a refugee camp in 1968 for Palestinians who left the West Bank and Gaza Strip during the 1967 Arab Israeli War. What were once tents are now concrete shelters, and the camp feels more like a town. Our first film shoot was for Maram, an 18-year old who has already been married and divorced. She was very open about expressing this...

Filming, filming, filming. We only filmed 1 video on the 2nd day and have 16 more to film over the next 2 days. So the day starts off with a busy schedule of back to back shoots. First up is Rosh (19). He emigrated from Iraq in 2003 with his family and has tried hard to keep his spirit and identity. He believes everything has a start and an end, and that you should remain true to yourself no matter where you are. Because of his strong ideas of moving forward, we decided to film h...
