‘The Host’ is a feature length documentary with animation elements that deals with the failings of international humanitarianism and challenges the European conception of a “refugee crisis” as something temporary.
Through a mosaic structure of several mini-stories, the Host is revealed as the Lebanese state embraces, ignores or exploits the permanent impermanence which is being manufactured around Syrian refugees.
