About the film Since their childhood, Louay, Yazan and Rami used to play together on the football fields in Syria’s Yarmouk Palestinian camp. With the intensification of the conflict around Damascus, they have taken refuge in Borj el-Barajneh camp, along Beirut suburbs, where they currently defend the colour of Al-Aqsa team, the Palestinian team that is the symbol of the camp. Stefano, Italian researcher and Al-Aqsa player, drives us inside the camp and the daily life of his teammates. Confined at the margins of the Lebanese society and its football system, Palestinian and Syrian refugees run after the improbable chance to wear the jersey of the most famous Lebanese teams. Footballization is a docu-movie shot in Syria, Lebanon and Palestine, where the football rhythm merges with the daily life stories inside and outside the camp.

This event is cosponsored by Department of Sociology, St Edmund’s College, Pembroke Refugee and Migrant Seminar Series, Italian Society, and PalSoc.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Migration Society series.
