From award-winning filmmaker Mai Masri, Frontiers of Dreams and Fears chronicles the friendship of two Palestinian girls, one who lives in a Beirut refugee camp and the other in Bethlehem's Israeli-run camp. Masri's Children of Shatila tells the story of two children living in Lebanon's Shatila refugee camp. Told from the viewpoint of Palestine children, the documentaries capture both the stark realities and the hopeful spirit within the camps.
