Batata

Greek Premiere
2022 marks the 10th anniversary of the Syrian Refugee Crisis. With over six million refugees, it remains the largest human forced migration crisis of our times. Shot over an unparalleled ten years, Lebanese-Syrian director Noura Kevorkian’s intimate camera follows the plight of Maria and her family of Syrian migrant workers who find themselves unable to return back to their hometown of Raqqa Syria. Unique among the numerous refugee stories to date, this verité documentary captures an entire decade while documenting not just the age-old conflict between Syria and Lebanon, but the unbending spirit of a woman who puts family ahead of all else.
