The Boy and the sea

The Boy and the sea

Director: Samer Ajouri [Syrie-Liban, 2016, 6 min, num., VOSTA]

Il était une fois un petit garçon qui aimait dessiner la mer. Un jour, il plongea, dans l’espoir d’échapper à la guerre et ses tourments, mais se retrouva submergé d’écrans de télévision et de reflets déformés de sa propre histoire. On se noie dans une mer d’images médiatiques, mais le monde regarde-t-il vraiment ?

Once upon a time, there was a boy who loved to draw the sea. One day, he dove in, hoping to escape the war and its miseries, only to find himself surrounded by TV screens and distorted images of his story. As we drown in a sea of media images, is the world even watching?
