What can an old apple tree tell us? What mysteries are hidden in his roots, gnarled over time? Does he remember the serpent and the lost Paradise? Our body remembers more than we can expect and imagine. It remembers the sorrow and pain of our predecessors. It keeps alive the stories of our parents and grandparents as well as their ancestors. But how far back is it possible to go in your bodily memory?
The stop-motion animation BODY MEMORY takes as its central concept the idea that our body remembers, not only individual experiences, but also the sorrow and pain of our predecessors. A powerful visualization of subconscious processes and the hidden horror of deportation. Inspired by historical events: the Soviet deportations from Estonia in the 1940s.

"Sometimes I forget that Beirut is a Port And it kills me to keep forgetting".
"Safineh" is a personal project initiated by Gabriel ferneiné, gathering footage through the years of views from Beirut rooftops and specially the Port.
Later, a collaboration began with Trash Inc Aka Nabil Saliba who came along and produced a track to fit with the edit and was very helpful in finding a name to the project :) "Safineh" is an arabic word for "Boat" or "Sailing ship".
Later on, graphical animation tagged smoothly to it and gave a nice taste to the edit.
All footage were shot with:
- GoPro Hero 3
- Samsung Galaxy S3
- Fuji X-M1
All footage were edited together sporadically, tilt and shift effect + graphical typography & Plexus lines were added in After effects.
