Tiny Souls is a simultaneously uplifting and brutally sombre account of three Syrian siblings, Marwa, Ayah and Mahmoud, as they grow up in the shadow of the Zaatari refugee camp in northern Jordan. Despite their circumstance, they are playful, loving and full of wonder, with a radiant positivity and optimism that seems inconceivable. Filmed over the course of four years, Dina Naser’s sublime documentary observes these children as they grow up in displacement, offering an account which is affectionate, honest and respectful, avoiding patronising sentimentality, and providing a potency and resonance that will endure long after viewing.
