About the Film
Little Marwa is a lively, inquisitive child, whose interests revolve around playtime, school and her siblings. She and her family live in Jordan’s Za’atari camp, the world’s largest camp for Syrian refugees, and hope to return home soon.
The weeks turn into years and all the while Tiny Souls documents Marwa’s day-to-day life as she blossoms from a cheeky child to a teenager, capturing the resilience and hopefulness of children displaced by conflict.
With her access to the camp often restricted, director Dina Naser provided cameras for Marwa and her siblings to film themselves, affording her protagonists a remarkable sense of agency in an environment otherwise cruelly lacking in autonomy.
Her quietly devastating documentary, exclusively shot from the children’s perspectives, raises crucial questions as to what lies in store for their whole generation.
