Silence
CHADI AOUN / LEBANON / 2016 / ANIMATION SHORT / 15 MINS

Silence is the only sound in the city of Ghabra. Any form of expression is met by death. SAMT is the introduction to a dysfunctional society that is about to implode.


Waves ’98
ELY DAGHER / LEBANON / 2015 / ANIMATION SHORT / 15 MINS

Disillusioned with his life in the suburbs of segregated Beirut, Omar's discovery lures him into the depth of the city. Immersed into a world that is so close yet so isolated from his reality, he loses track of time and finds himself struggling to keep his attachments and his sense of home.
