Children of War

Les Enfants de la guerre

Jocelyne Saab

Days after the Karantina massacre in a predominantly Muslim shanty town in Beirut, Jocelyne Saab met children who’d escaped, and who were deeply traumatised by the horrific fighting they’d seen with their own eyes. She gave them crayons and encouraged them to draw while her camera filmed. She made a bitter discovery: the only games the children engaged in were war games, and the war would quickly become a way of life for them as well.
