4 Cameras =
What is it like to grow up in a refugee camp? In your formative years, how would it feel to be cut off from your homeland, unsure whether it will ever be safe to return? What form would your dreams take? What would make you happy? Sad? If you had the chance, how would you express your hopes and dreams to the outside world?
Project Einstein tells stories by 11 children, ages 10-14, living in Kutupalong Refugee Camp in Bangladesh. They are Rohingya, a Muslim minority from Western Burma (Myanmar). Over the past two decades, over 250,000 Rohingya have sought refuge in neighboring Bangladesh, fleeing violent persecution in their homeland.
