Syria’s Tent Cities examines the lives of Syrian refugees in Middle Eastern refugee camps while also answering the question of what happens next, once they’re resettled in Canada. The film allows the audience to better understand the many challenges a refugee faces, taking them on an eye-opening journey to both sides of the globe. Throughout the film, the refugees work to improve their situation through the efforts of two individuals who have dedicated their lives to making education and inclusivity a right for all Syrian children: Nowell Sukkar and Mazen El-Baba. Bassam Khawaja and Adam Coogle of Human Rights Watch in Lebanon and Jordan respectively reveal the harsh realities of Syrian refugees’ living conditions in neighbouring countries, as well as the underlying issues that act as barriers to education for children.
