PART OF THE WNY REFUGEE FILM FESTIVAL SLOW ROLL GRAND FINALE: A SYRIAN TRILOGY 

 
 

AFTER SPRING

We close the 2nd Annual WNY Refugee Film Festival with the Buffalo premiere of After Spring. By following two refugee families in transition and aid workers fighting to keep the camp running, viewers will experience what it is like to live in Zaatari, the largest camp for Syrian refugees with close to 80,000 inhabitants. With no end in sight for the conflict or the global refugee crisis, everyone must decide if they can rebuild their lives in a place that was never meant to be permanent. After Spring was executive produced by Jon Stewart, and had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2016.

After Spring High Res 3 copy.jpg
★★★★★. The massive scale of the Syrian refugee problem makes it easy to abstract into percentages. After Spring neither answers questions about the crisis nor poses a solution. What it does is responsibly and knowledgeably bring film-goers to those directly affected by it, and to those trying to make a difference.
— Patricia Contino, The Upcoming
It is a touching and unexpectedly positive message that makes After Spring a valuable contribution to the range of documentaries emerging from the on-going horrors of the conflict in Syria.
