About the Film

With the Syrian conflict now in its sixth year, millions of people continue to be displaced. After Spring is the story of what happens next. By following two refugee families in transition and aid workers fighting to keep the camp running, viewers will experience what it is like to live in Zaatari, the largest camp for Syrian refugees. With no end in sight for the conflict or this refugee crisis, everyone must decide if they can rebuild their lives in a place that was never meant to be permanent. With a World Premiere at Tribeca Film Festival 2016, the film was Executive Produced by Jon Stewart, and has an average 8.4/10 rating on IMDB.

Doors open at approximately 6:35; show starts at 6:50. Please note that the theatre has limited seating for wheelchair accessible seats. Please contact us to ensure a space is available.
