in a cage

Tanya Shehab

Farrah Khatib and Rola Soboh

You feel like you’re in a cage. You want to get out of it, but you can’t. Like we’re stuck…”


Farrah Khatib and Rola Soboh lead us on an exploration of how the residents of the Ain el Helwe Refugee Camp see the checkpoint that separates them from the rest of Lebanon. (Voice actors include Myra Shaaban, Rana Baghdadi, Nour Al Halabi, Dima Akel, Elias Demardjian and Charles Semaan.) 


Tanya Shehab gives us a personal look at what it means to have anxiety in Lebanon.
