50 minutes

Stars of Bethlehemis a portrait of six young Palestinian refugees who live in the three refugee camps of Bethlehem (West Bank).  During the summer of 2007, Marie-Ève Leduc, a student in Visual Anthropology introduced them to filmmaking and each of them developed a very individual and creative short film. The project aimed to give voice to the Palestinian conflict's hidden social actors: the adolescents. Their films as well as their comments reflect how they perceive, feel and apply meanings to what they experienced in the past, how they cope with the present and what they dream for the future.
