I’m sure this short movie will bring back a lot of memories to those who lived through the war in 1990. I wrote about this short movie last year mentioning I would love to see it and fortunately the publisher switched the video from being a private link to a public link just a few days ago.
The clip resolves around a true story that took place. During the war the Iraqi forces would ambush houses and steal all the jewellery as well as commit massive crimes. So it was a popular scene for the families to hide in the storage room above the toilet. You don’t see a lot of houses with a storage room above the toilet nowadays but it was in every house back then. That storage room is called “Sandarah”.
You rarely see local talent that’s this good, I wish tosee more with these standards, it was awarded best short animation at the VOYA festival in Hollywood.
