Product Description

'An extraordinary story that deals with the urgent issues of our era . . . a story about resilience, renewal' - Elif Shafak

A stunning testament to human strength, courage and compassion, 
Hope Not Fear shows that nobody is powerless to change the world. This memoir from refugee, filmmaker, and activist Hassan Akkad traces his campaigns for justice, from protesting the Assad regime in Syria to winning greater rights for cleaners in the NHS.

Since seeking asylum in the UK, Hassan’s unshakeable instinct to raise awareness, help and connect, has seen him share not only his experience as a refugee, but to the coronavirus pandemic as a covid ward cleaner and documentary filmmaker. As a witness and advocate, he bridges national and political divides; his humanity, sense of service and ideals bring people together.

If you find yourself wondering where to find hope in difficult times, this book is the place to start.

About Author

Hassan Akkad is a documentary filmmaker and an activist living in London. He fled Syria in 2012 and after a punishing three-month journey across Europe, he arrived in London. Akkad co-directed Convergence a Netflix documentary paying tribute to the unsung heroes of the pandemic and was part of the team that made Exodus: Our Journey to Europe which won the BAFTA for Best Factual Series or Strand in 2017. He worked in film and TV production and for Choose Love, a refugee advocacy organization, until the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, when he took a job as an NHS hospital cleaner at Whipps Cross Hospital in East London. He documented the pandemic through photographs of his colleagues posted on social media. His posts went viral and he has since been featured in Vogue, Al-Jazeera, the Guardian, BBC News and the Independent. Hope Not Fear is his first book.
