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.
Ghadir is 15 years old. She fled from Al Qseir, Syria when she was 12, to Baalbeck Lebanon.
Like most people who fled their homes during the Syrian war, Ghadir is searching for a place to inhabit, for a place to call home. she experiences loss and tries to reconstruct her life again.
