, world-premiered in Visions du Réel's International Competition and received the Interreligious Award. We exclusively bring you the trailer for the film.

The district of Yarmouk in Damascus sheltered the biggest Palestinian refugee camp in the world from 1957 to 2018. When the Syrian revolution broke out, the regime of Bashar Al-Assad saw Yarmouk as a refuge of rebels and resistance and set up a siege from 2013 on. Gradually deprived of food, medicine and electricity, Yarmouk was cut off from the rest of the world.

Al-Khatib was born in Yarmouk and lived there until his expulsion by Daesh in 2015. Between 2011 and 2015, he and his friends documented the daily life of the besieged inhabitants, who decided to face bombing, displacement and hunger with rallying, study, music, love and joy.

Hundreds of lives were irredeemably transformed by war and siege - from Abdallah’s mother, who turned into a nurse taking care of the elderly at the camp, to the fiercest activists whose passion for Palestine got gradually undermined by hunger.

Little Palestine (Diary of a Siege) is a co-production between Beirut-based Bidayyat for Audiovisual Arts and France's Films de Force Majeure, and Swiss company Lightdox has the international rights.

The film was supported by L’Aide aux Cinémas du Monde (CNC, Institut Français), the Fonds d’Aide à l’Innovation Audiovisuelle du CNC, Région Sud, the Sundance Documentary Grant, the Doha Film Institute, MEDIA / Creative Europe, AFAC, Al Jazeera, Culture Resource (Al-Mawred Al-Thaqafy), IMS, the Scam (Bourse Brouillon d’un rêve), la Procirep-Angoa and Studio Lemon.
