Catherine van Campen – The Netherlands – 2016

Children are experts at creating something out of nothing. A wad of paper becomes a soccer ball, two insects a zoo.

Zaatari Djinn is an exceptionally intimate movie about the resilience of children who have a much rosier view of life than adults.

In the middle of the Jordanian desert, where there's nothing but sand, unbearable summers and winters with snowstorms, a few tents were set up for a couple of hundred Syrian refugees. Then, quick as lightning, improvised shacks and caravans were attached to new tents and out of nothing arose Zaatari, a new city, the population of which is 60% children.

Through the eyes of four children, we get to see and feel what it is like to grow up in this place, with very few resources or prospects, but with an enormous scope for dreams. Zaatari may be a place without a history or a future, but for the children it is a home.

Zaatari Djinn was warmly received when it premiered at the renowned IDFA Documentary Festival in Amsterdam: “The film is a tribute to life, made by a great director. This is a great piece of art.” The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Ruth Vandewalle. She was production manager of the film and travelled to Zaatari refugee camp numerous times for the research and filming of ‘Zaatari Djinn’. You’re most welcome to ask all your questions!
