In this short film Telling the Human Story: Reporting Refugees from Lebanon by LSE MSc student Joelle Eid, journalists based in Lebanon talk about how they covered the story of the Syrian refugee crisis from the place it all started and where it continues. They provide insight into the challenges and inspiration they found trying to convey the complexity and humanity of this extraordinary event that has become a critical issue for the whole of Europe as well as the Middle East. We hear in their own words how they sought to get the world to pay attention to and care about the suffering and hopes of the refugees and how they struggled to create journalism that might make a difference while staying true to their professional values and the demands of news production.
