The Children of Iraq

The Fifth Estate

Even in war, kids can be kids. While on assignment covering Canada’s war in Iraq, fifth estate cinematographer John Badcock reflects on the day-to-day life and the resiliency of children in a massive refugee camp. Fleeing a bloody civil war in neighbouring Syria, at least 10,000 people – half of them children – have made the Kawergosk refugee camp into a permanent home near Erbil in northern Iraq. Badcock, filming the fifth estate’s Hidden War documentary, takes us behind the scenes at what he saw -- and how he filmed it.
