About the Film

ZINCO is an urban chronicle of the construction material used in building Palestinian refugee homes in Al Talbieh Camp in Jordan. By retracing the transformations of habitats from tents of canvas to buildings of reinforced concrete, the film looks for visible evidence of displacement and reflects on the universal need for a home.  An Arabic slang word, “Zinco” refers to the corrugated tin that still makes up most rooftops in the camp today.
