SAMT(silence) Trailer

Written and Directed by Chadi Aoun
"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."

SAMT is an animated short that raises the timely question of freedoms in the Arab world, and the repression thereof. It mainly deals with the topic of freedom of expression through movement. Whether it is the freedom of speech and ideas, or the freedom of being different and choosing a diverse path to the established status quo – SAMT touches on the wider reality of a rising Arab youth who have inherited decayed political, social, and economic systems, and who have found a way to express their voices through the recent uprisings that are still shaking the region in the hope of a better future.

The CONTRACT – ILO

This project is an initiative of the International Labour Organization (ILO) tackling the issue of foreign domestic worker rights in Lebanon.

We had a lot to say about the subject (obviously), and we elaborated several concepts, with storyboards and character designs that did not see the light; sometimes too harsh,, too activist, too caricaturist;

No limits for creative minds. But it is a very delicate subject to treat as well.

The winner was "the contract story" that approaches the matter in a subtle yet ironic way.

Thank you for Kamal Hakim, Muhammad Moneimne, Chadi Aoun, and on an earlier stage, Joelle Achkar, Ghadi Ghosn and Jad Sarout.
