2018 has seen an immense turn in the middle east after the US decision to pull out of the Iran Nuclear deal. This has spilled over to most countries in the area, mosre specifically as we know, Israel and Palestine. As Israel and others do not differentiate between Lebanon and Hezbollah and Gaza and Hamas, violence is only going to continue.
This is why one of our films, Lost in Lebanon, is extremely important for all to see. The Scott sisters, the directors, have screened the film all over Europe, from the Humanity House in the Hague in April to a screening tomorrow in Brussels. As violence continues, displacement will only increase as well - making this film more timely than ever.
Since 2018 has begun, Lost in Lebanon has enjoyed screenings to some of the biggest human rights-oriented audiences in the world. Lost in Lebanon was screened in Amsterdam where it was the opening film at the Human Rights Watch festival. The weekend focused on the most important human rights issues and violations of our times. Our directors, the Scott Sisters, spoke at the panel with the Terrorism and Counterrorism director at HRW to activitsts, researchers, members of parliament and journalists.
The film was chosen as The International Organization of Migration's opening film for their Global Migration Film Festival. It was shown in Geneva, the heart of the UN, with Vienna, Paris, Argentina, Bulgaria, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Estonia and Hungary to follow. Lastly, the film had a sponsored screening by the EU at the UN, as well as a screening in Beiruit. Our directors, Sophia and Georgia Scott, have been screening our film to the biggest human rights organizations to show the world the hopeless reality so many Syrians face and encouraging people to look beyond devastating statistics. In the world of our filmmakers, "there is an end because there has to be an end!"
“Lost in Lebanon,” a 3 Generations documentary that documents the stories of four Syrians who escaped the violence of their home country, is continuing its successful run at film festivals worldwide and promoting policy change in the wake of the ongoing Syrian refugee crisis. In early December, the film will be opening the International Organization for Migration festival in Geneva, and it will have its Austrian premiere at This Human World. Then, it will be screened at the EU Human Rights Film Days in Turkey and by Human Rights Watch in Beirut.
The documentary shows viewers the fate of Syrians after the immediate wake of their displacement, when they are left disillusioned and stateless. It therefore allows us to grasp the plight of refugees in regions beyond Syria, from those fleeing persecution in Myanmar to victims of increased environmental disasters due to climate change. These are issues that 3 Generations continues to monitor and document as human rights issues.
