Dreaming in Za’atari: Stories After Syria




"I want to write stories about the whole world. Then everyone will know my name."

Seven years after the Syrian crisis first began, Dreaming in Za’atari takes you into the worlds of teenagers Mahmoud, Tabarak, and Najat.

This immersive film by Contrast, produced in partnership with World Vision, explores the three teenagers' hopes and dreams for the future through VR animations that transform the spaces around them. It illuminates the voices of teenage refugees whose dreams are like any other teenage dreams in the world, in spite of their surroundings.
