SALAM NEIGHBOR – Producers
Chris Temple and Zach Ingrasci, directors of the award-winning documentary, Living on One Dollar, are once again entering a world that few understand or connect with by spending four weeks living alongside displaced refugees in Jordan. Joined by Ibraheem Shaheen, their young Jordanian translator and counterpart, they will live in the same conditions as refugees, eating the same food and sharing the same facilities. By fully immersing themselves in the Za’atari camp and the surrounding refugee communities, they will uncover the daily struggles, heartbreaks, and dreams that make up life on the edge of a conflict, providing a new lens into the life of a Syrian refugee.
