In a period of catastrophic human displacement in the Middle East, considered the most severe since the second world war, there are few who realise that the largest single refugee population in the world today remains that of the Palestinians.

This short but powerful documentary (25 minutes) provides a general introductory background to the Palestinian refugee issue, but is drawn mainly from the Palestinian refugee camps of Lebanon, where activist/filmmaker Jon Pullman toured and filmed in 2015.

Film & Q&A with the Director.
