Al Jazeera World - Beirut's Refugee Artists

Please Log in or Register to watch this video.

The ongoing conflict in Syria has forced not only Syrians, but Iraqis and Palestinian refugees out of the country and into Lebanon in search of safety. The massive influx of millions of refugees into Europe in 2015 sparked a global rise in far-right anti-immigration movements, claiming to fight for a way of life they believe to be under threat. Lebanon has not been immune to that trend, meaning the Lebanese perspective is increasingly one of 'Lebanese first'. This film introduces us to some refugees who share their coping mechanisms to displacement and whose lives change completely.
