International House Faculty Fellow for Fall 2014, Dr. Wael Al-Delaimy, will present 2 documentary films on refugees in the Middle East followed by a discussion moderated by Dr. Al-Delaimy, Professor of Epidemiology and Chief of the Division of Global Health at the Department of Family and Preventive Medicine at UCSD.
The films are:
ZA’ATARI REFUGEE CAMP (2013) When it opened, Za’atari had just 100 families. Today, it has about 120,000 residents. Located 18 miles south of the Syrian border, it’s the fourth largest city in Jordan and the second largest refugee camp in the world.
SOMEONE LIKE ME (2011) Funded by the European Commission Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection Department (ECHO), the 24-minute film sheds light on the challenges and aspirations of young Palestine refugees growing up in Lebanon.
