We Cannot Go There Now, My Dear


by Carol Mansour

This documentary highlights the story of Palestinian refugees that have been living in Syria since they had been forced to flee Palestine in 1948. As the Syrian crisis intensifies, they alongside the Syrians have been affected by the war. 

Their story, however, is more complex. By fleeing Syria and seeking refuge in Lebanon they are becoming a special category of refugees: they are refugees twice over. As Palestinians they are not entirely welcome in Lebanon. As refugees,
their travel documents are not recognized. As Palestinians, this is the second time they lose everything and find themselves once more homeless and stateless.
