Syria’s leftover

Video work

Emine AKBABA [Germany]


A web documentary about a Syrian family who became refugees to escape the war in their homeland. The mother and daughters describe their horrific experiences in their own words with video clips, texts, and photos. Women and children easily become victims in times of crisis, and although the family now lives in Turkey away from the war, their emotional wounds still weigh heavily on them, affecting their lives.
