The Last Encounter
To a group of 25 Lebanese and Syrian youth, the Syrian film maker Wael Kadlo and I gave a series of workshops on making short videos. We had different sessions to explain and explore with the group the relationship of image and sound, the mechanisms of communicating a message, a story or a feeling through video. Then we created frames for the group to come up with a common theme to individually explore in a short video.
This is one of the videos.
Aassem is 20 years old. He fled from Homs, Syria when he was 17, to Al Aein, Lebanon.
Aassem had to not only leave his home, neighborhood, personal belongings behind, but also his beloved.
