Two Americans head to the edge of war, just seven miles from the Syrian border, to live
among 85,000 uprooted refugees in Jordan's Za'atari camp.
As the first filmmakers allowed by the United Nations to register and set-up a tent inside a refugee camp, Zach and Chris plunge into the heart of the world's most pressing humanitarian crisis. From meeting Um Ali, a woman struggling to overcome personal loss and cultural barriers, to the street smart, 10-year-old Raouf, whose trauma hides just beneath his ever present smile, Zach and Chris uncover inspiring stories of individuals rallying, against all odds, to rebuild their lives and those of their neighbors.
“Salam Neighbor is a beautifully crafted story that delivers a powerful message. It will leave you touched and inspired to take action. This film is a must-see.” - UN Refugee Agency
“On a subject too often discussed in terms of numbers, Zach and Chris capture the human element of one of the greatest refugee crises of this generation.” - Congressman Ted Lieu
"Chris and Zach are pushing the boundaries of how we tell stories and maximize social impact in the 21st century. They bring passion matched with professionalism and a humble respect for the people they’re seeking to help.” - Carolyn Miles, CEO, Save the Children
Let’s create a more peaceful world by treating refugees, not as burdens, but as our global neighbors. This is a critical moment, with more refugees today than anytime in the last century.
