Al Amari (After the rain) (2006)

Origin: Unknown | Documentary | Director: Sylvain Calves | 52 minutes


In the refugee camp of Al Amari located on the outskirts of Ramallah, the
quality of living has dwindled since the beginning of the second Intifada -
insecurity, unemployment, inoperative infrastructures... Alone with a small
digital camera and no translator, the filmmaker faces considerable
difficulty comprehending this microcosm of the Palestinian refugee
experience. Before long, the filmmaker meets up with Darwish Abu Alish, an
out of work Palestinian filmmaker who becomes guide, translator, and
subject as the film explores the social, political, and economic
innerworkings of the refugee camp.
