Then They Said Refugee - Short Documentary by Jacob Boswall & Persis Love, 28'

'Then They Said Refugee' tells the story of Fadi, a theatre instructor, living in Dheisheh refugee camp, teaches his young students non-violent resistance, and to grasp of their own Palestinian heritage. But when the line between violence and non-violence blurs, existential and sensitive questions arise making it difficult to know what to teach the next generation of West Bankers.

This is a first film by Jacob Boswall and Persis Love, who aim to offer undistorted depictions of people caught in processes beyond their control.
