The raw experience of people who are forced to flee their country, captured in an expressive charcoal animation. Based on the creator’s personal experiences.
This charcoal animation takes the viewer along on a journey full of visual imagination and profound emotions. Inspired by his personal experiences as a Syrian refugee, Shaheen is familiar with the struggle of someone who is forced to leave his country without knowing what the future will bring. Without a storyboard, he invites the viewer to this rich, artistic expression, in a search for a glimmer of hope amidst great insecurity.
