Acre

Acre

Acre is a short film which was written, filmed, and produced by the students of the Summer Help IN English Program (SHINE) Project run by the LEAP Program & Beit Atfal Assomoud, Shatila. The students who worked on this project are from the Shatila refugee camp in Beirut, Lebanon. "The Film talks about Palestine and what happened to our country. It speaks about our right to return and our struggle as Palestinian Refugees. We love the community centers in Shatilla, our families, friends, food, and way of life. All of us wish to return to Palestine one day."
