Documentary: Syria – so near, so far (Video)
Five Syrian refugees in Turkey reveal their hopes, fears and why their homeland feels like a world away.
Syria’s civil war has been raging for three years, leaving hundreds of thousands displaced, injured or dead. Two-hundred-and-forty thousand Syrians have sought refuge in Turkey in the past three years. Fifteen thousand of them have come to a camp at Öncüpinar in Kilis province, right next to the Syrian border.
Syria: So near, so far follows the daily lives of five Syrians in Öncüpinar, struggling to come to terms with life in exile, in an alien environment, cheek-by-jowl with thousands of others. It is about their concern for their own and their families’ futures – and what Syria means to them as their country continues to be torn apart.
