The war in Syria began six years ago. According to UNICEF, this means that only one in three Syrian children has experienced life without war. “69 Minutes of 86 Days” succeeds in bringing an extremely rare perspective to that phenomenon. The film follows events entirely through the eyes of one of those children, allowing us to see it from the point of view of a very young refugee. Three-year-old Lean is on her way to join her grandfather, who lives in Uppsala in Sweden. There is no narrative to accompany her journey; nor are there any explanatory interviews. “69 Minutes of 86 Days” also avoids the usual shocking pictures; with great stillness, it stresses that refugees are not numbers, or potential labour, but rather first and foremost people. Lean sings a song, plays with her uncle, and shares a lollipop with her sister. Those everyday moments in a situation that is almost beyond endurance become a symbol of a rigorous humanism.
