THE WAITING is the first of a trilogy of films, which explore the social repercussions of post-colonialism on countries. It was filmed during a seven-week stay in Camp Zaatari, the Syrian refugee camp in the Jordanian desert, and focuses on the simple and unrelenting life of a few Syrian women. Mario Rizzi’s trilogy looks at how a revolutionary event can be triggered by the unfolding of everyday events.
