Camp Indefinite

In AFTER SPRING we journey to the Jordanian refugee camp of Zaatari, which is home to 80,000 Syrians who’ve fled their homeland because of the civil war. More than half of the camp’s inhabitants are children and although the settlement offers both a pet shop and taekwondo lessons from a Korean master, these young people have no opportunity for an education. Co-executive produced by Jon Stewart, this informative documentary delves into this and other troubling aspects of having one’s life put indefinitely on hold.
