“What I want from you is to come and see my life.” Kurdish filmmaker Bahman Ghobadi has given eight children from two refugee camps the opportunity to use a camera to tell their own stories. After the filmmaking classes and workshops, young directors made their own scripts, produced and filmed their lives inside their camps. Each of the eight films gives us a glimpse into the plight of the children as well as the Kurdish refugees, as seen through their own eyes.
