Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

What's hidden in the smartphone of a refugee? A documentary has the answer...

2015-12-05

They are refugees who left it all behind. They survived turmoil, fear and strife. Now part of their identity is locked in on their cell phones. 

Roughly 82,000 refugees live in Zaatari, Jordan. It's the world's second largest refugee camp.  This man is putting his skills to use, by helping fix the phones of refugees. 

Maamum Al-Wadi says it's about much more than just a kind gesture. Ultimately it's about salvaging the identities of these refugees. Some of the pictures are of loved ones, who were left behind....Others are of painful experiences, that nonetheless, are now part of their lives.  

"Is this a mortar shell. Yes it is.” 

His and their story is part of a film titled 'District Zero' which sheds light on the past these refugees have survived and their prospects for the future, however, unstable they may be. 

"Are you going back, or will you stay here. We will stay here in Zaatari as long as God wishes.” 

Now that they are separated from their land, the goal is to create a powerful link to their land and their family members left behind, alive or not..

"It's as if we were asleep for ten years here. Sleeping or dying, what's the difference.” 

The film is co-produced by Arena Comunicacion and Txalap art. The goal is to catch a glimpse at the every day life of refugees, one phone at a time.
