I have to start working on my final project for my Master Course, and I decided to do something, short animation movie, about Palestine and specifically about children and war.. about killing the innocence .. (for who do not know, I am studying Motion Graphics)
well, i am one of many who was really in pain during what happened in Gaza few months ago.. and what was more painful that i could not do anything for them! I want to get out this pain from my chest and do something useful, even if it is not big thing.. but i want to translate this energy inside me to show the foreign world the real world that Palestinians are living for the last 60 years!
When I told my tutors and class about my idea, there was a common feedback from most of them. "Do not make it so sad"!, "We already know how bad is the situation there, do not make it sad ending!", "You are going to live with sad images and stories for the coming six months, should you pick something more cheerful to work with?!"
i was shocked by that! Now i know for sure that Palestinians are living alone in this world! I told them, i will try to search for happiness inside me first! Imagine that your people are being killed in front of your eyes and you are not able to do anything! what cheerful thing I have to consider in my work?
Am I wrong? tell me? Am I suppose to show them the happy part of our lives, if there is any, so i wont make them feel sad?
