25 THOUSAND TENTS OR MORE


Directed by | Samer Salameh and Alaa Alsaadi

Genre documentary  |  Length: 34mins  |  Year of production: 2009


25 Thousand Tents or More tells the stories of some of the hundreds of Palestinian families that are currently stranded in the AlTanaf detention camp situated in the “noman's land” between today’s Iraqi and Syrian borders. Following the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, Palestinians who had found refuge in Iraq after 1948, have been forced to flee and take refuge elsewhere once more. Samer Salameh’s film gives rare voice to camp residents who tell of the hardships they endure, what led them to flee Iraq, and their hopes for the future.
