Summary

At 3 Generations we are thrilled to be producing the latest film by the Scott Sisters currently titled, "Beyond the Border." The film follows four Syrian refugees currently displaced in Lebanon. Most people do not realize that every 15 seconds, a Syrian becomes a refugee and an estimated 2 million Syrians have crossed the border into Lebanon. Lebanon is surrounded by war on all sides. It is a country now at breaking point. Please join us in supporting this important film.

Challenge

Since violence erupted in Syria in 2011, more than 2.1 million have fled to neighboring countries, flooding cities unprepared to support a population left virtually destitute by war. Often unable to work, Syrian families have become entirely dependent on aid organizations & the generosity of strangers. Refugees describe loss beyond imagination; none greater than loss of dignity. By providing an outlet for them to speak, your donation restores their humanity & amplifies their call for action.

Solution

Our films have global impact. By utilizing our diverse transmedia resources, this powerful short film takes the audience beyond the daily headlines. Through a series of interviews, focused on a single experience, memory or story, we glimpse humanity, joy, and community in the lives of five Syrian refugees. We aim to create a short, beautiful, and moving account of the humanity behind a situation most of us only understand as a news item.

Long-Term Impact

This film advocates for long-term understanding of refugee crises. Through a professionally produced, thoughtful short film, we can raise worldwide awareness & encourage focused action.
