A Requiem for Syrian Refugees is a poignant journey of survival, resilience and empowerment. Requiem is a wrenching documentary that features epic landscapes and compelling candid testimonies of Syrian refugees. Shot unembedded less than one hundred miles from ISIS controlled territory, Requiem offers an unprecedented in-depth perspective on the daily lives and feelings of refugees. Requiem was shot with a crew of young refugees who felt the urgency to convey their situation to the world.. Albeit set against a bleak background, Requiem is a film about hope. As the adolescent refugee Mizgin says: "This experience has made us stronger". The film ends with a cathartic wedding ceremony revealing their unwavering joy of life. Requiem is a celebration of the human spirit facing adversity which The New York Times calls "powerfully direct....a palpable sense of what life is like in one camp in northern Iraq.".
