Diamonds, Backpacks and a Matchbox is an intimate portrayal of struggle, unfathomable loss, and the enduring power of the human spirit.

It's a film about survival and belonging, which captures the catastrophic impact of the Syrian war through the eyes of those who have lived it. 

Filmed in refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon over a five-month period, this feature-length documentary tells the stories of some of the millions of Syrians whose lives have been upended by desperation and violence. These are the voices of Syria's survivors; sharing their fears, dreams and hopes for the future. Diamonds, Backpacks and a Matchbox is the human face behind the most urgent humanitarian crisis of our time, and a call for empathy to a world that still too often looks the other way".


A group of teenage girls get stuck on a cruise ship, as they wait for dawn to break they play a game - where each one of them projects what they see themselves having done to change the world in sixteen years from now, when they’re 32, by reflecting on the change that want to see in the world in SISTERHOOD's "Action". 

The full album, titled SISTERHOOD, features appearances from Little Miss Flint, Cecile Richards, Aparna Nancherla, Sasheer Zamata, Lizzo, Girls Who Code alumni, and more!
