Souriyat: A Documentary Short

Souriyat is a documentary short we did back in 2017.

It is about the work of Souriyat Across Borders in Amman, Jordan — offering rehabilitation services to men and boys wounded in the Syrian civil war.

This film is just one of the inspiring stories we were able to witness and record. There are so many more to tell.

Many of our documentary films feature humanitarian organizations or individuals working to make the world a better place:

  • Witness at Tornillo: The story of one man standing up for justice and starting a movement to free asylum-seeking children from an internment camp.
  • Songs From the Street: A story of homeless people finding visibility and community through choir.
  • Syrian Doctor (working title): In post-production now. A story of the mental health crisis in Syrian refugee children.
  • A Vietnam Peace Story: A story of the internal conflict and growth of U.S. veterans returning to Vietnam.
  • Witness at the Border:  A story of the Central Americans forced to wait for months or years for an asylum hearing in a makeshift and dangerous refugee camp because new U.S. federal policies.
  • All of a Sudden: In production now. The story of the emotional and social transition that occurs when a chronically homeless person receives a permanent home.
