MacArthur Foundation recipients Ellen Martinez and Steph Ching helm the new documentary “After Spring,” aided by executive producer Jon Stewart. The film will receive its world premiere next month at the Tribeca Film Festival.
“After Spring” follows the Syrian conflict, focusing on families and aid workers fighting to keep Zaatari, the second largest refugee camp in the world, up and running. Opened in 2012, the camp holds 80,000 people, and is considered the fourth largest city in Jordan. Given a timely release, next week marks the fifth anniversary of the start of the Syrian conflict, which has displaced over just over 10 million people.
The Tribeca Film Festival released a statement regarding the debut of the movie: “‘After Spring’ immerses us in the rhythms of the camp, the role of aid workers, and the daily lives of two families as they contemplate an uncertain future…This is a fascinating journey through the camp’s physical and human landscapes.”
“After Spring” is set to debut on April 14 at the Tribeca Film Festival. Watch the trailer above and see our exclusive poster below.
