Animated by Jeb Hardwick
This is an animation for the qanun player Maya Youssef, who had seen her hometown in Syria go through a time of unimaginable turmoil. During this period she had a dream about the sky being filled with bombs before they turned to petals and fell to earth.
I was honoured to be entrusted with interpreting this dream, this tension between hope and fear. I hope you enjoy the collaboration.
