AL AMARI (AFTER THE RAIN)


Directed by | Sylvain Calves

Genre documentary  |  Length: 52mins  |  Year of production: 2006


In the refugee camp of Al Amari located on the outskirts of Ramallah, the quality of living has dwindled since the beginning of the second Intifada – insecurity, unemployment, inoperative infrastructures… Alone with a small digital camera and no translator, the filmmaker faces considerable difficulty comprehending this microcosm of the Palestinian refugee experience. Before long, the filmmaker meets up with Darwish Abu Alish, an out of work Palestinian filmmaker who becomes guide, translator, and subject as the film explores the social, political, and economic innerworkings of the refugee camp.
