25 Thousand Tents or More tells the stories of some of the hundreds of
Palestinian families that are currently stranded in the AlTanaf detention
camp situated in the "noman's land" between today's Iraqi and Syrian
borders. Following the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, Palestinians who had
found refuge in Iraq after 1948, have been forced to flee and take refuge
elsewhere once more. Samer Salameh's film gives rare voice to camp
residents who tell of the hardships they endure, what led them to flee
Iraq, and their hopes for the future.
