Degrees of Success (w/English subtitles)

1,259 views 4 years ago
Parents tell their children if they excel in school they will enjoy a comfortable life. But this "A" student from Gaza refugee camp in Jerash, Jordan, discovers that being a stateless refugee means his high grades are worthless. And how does he react? He collects more degrees and attends every workshop and training he comes across. Stateless academic achievers in refugee camps end up working menial jobs or jobs for which they are greatly overqualified.

This exercise film was produced part of the Hope Films workshop held for the benefit of Gaza refugee camp residents in Jordan.
