A Portrait of Syria’s Lost Generation

Since the outbreak of civil war in Syria in 2011, millions of Syrians have fled their homes—more than half of them are under the age of 18. The short film Syria’s Lost Generation by Talking Eyes Media gives an intensely personal account of two teenagers living as refugees. It is an unflinching portrait of interrupted childhood and the burden of growing up too quickly.

This short film is part of an ongoing series on The Atlantic from Talking Eyes Media about movement, location, and identity called State of Migration.
