Children of Beqaa Film Screening

“Children of Beqaa documents director Elias Matar and his daughter Lyla, traveling to the Beqaa Valley, Lebanon in June of 2016 to work with Salam LADC, a local NGO. Here in the Beqaa, there are over 500,000 Syrian refugees who have been living in a state of limbo for the past 5 years. These refugees are left in the dark; they have no country, nearly no rights, very little education and not enough food. Children of Beqaa gives a voice to the refugees, who just want their stories to be heard.” Click here to see the trailer.

Join Refugee Action and Elias Matar for discussion afterwards.

Dinner will be served and donations will be accepted to support our local refugee resettlement agency.
