With the  Syrian conflict now in its sixth year, millions of people continue to  be displaced. After Spring is the story of what happens next. By following two refugee families in transition and aid workers fighting to keep the camp running, viewers will experience what it is like to live in Zaatari, the largest camp for Syrian refugees. With no end in sight for the conflict or this refugee crisis, everyone must decide if they can rebuild their lives in a place that was never meant to be permanent.

Film will have a talkback afterward with:
Timothy Daly , Neighborhood Health Centers of the Lehigh Valley
Katie Morris, Lehigh University, class of 2018, Global Studies and Journalism
Sarah Stanlick, Lehigh University, Director of the Center for Community Engagement
