The refugee crisis is a global crisis
Indigo is the first short film produced by WHo CAREs!? (Content driven call for action) aiming to bring to light two major misunderstood facts:
1-The refugee crisis is actually a growing global issue, it is political but also environmental.
2-Out of the 68.5 refugees today, more than half are children...
The film’s objective was to give a voice to the voiceless, all these voiceless children...
So we went to a refugee camp near the Syrian Border, in Lebanon and we had a conversation with Rahaf, a 7 year old girl, Syrian refugee.
Her impressions and perspective is seen through a color lense.
Indigo, is the last shade of the pink color family before getting to blue. (Blue referring to sadness)
Pink is the color of caring and the color of empathy... Indigo is a metaphor to our last chance to give the refugee crisis the attention it deserves and the actions it requires.
Our last chance to care...
THERE ARE 68.5 MILLION REFUGEES IN THE WORLD TODAY
Who is a refugee?
”A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee his or her country because of persecution, war, or violence. A refugee has a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group. Most likely, they cannot return home or are afraid to do so. War and ethnic, tribal and religious violence are leading causes of refugees fleeing their countries.”
The threat of continued massive displacement is real, and the world must be prepared to deal with it.
