Father's Footsteps

In the Syrian War, a woman lost her husband and tries to hide the truth from her tongue-tied (mute) child by acting the father role, facing life alone trying to protect her family.

Dounia and the Princess of Aleppo

An animated film that merges reality and magic, the film tells the story of Dounia, a 6 years old who lives in Aleppo, a thousand-year-old legendary city in the heart of the world. But one day, war breaks out. So she leaves Aleppo with a few nigella seeds in her hand. With the help of the princess of Aleppo, Dounia makes the journey to a new world. Throughout her journey, Dounia, whose beautiful first name means “the world” in Arabic, is accompanied by the rich tales and music of her country. And, in the face of a seemingly insurmountable obstacle, the wisdom of the ancient world comes to rescue the girl in the form of her grandmother’s nigella seeds and the legends of the Levant.  Dounia is a geopolitical story that is told at a child’s level. It’s a quest of initiation that poetically and delicately tells the story of the exile and uprooting of war, while exploring current themes of migration, identity, dialogue of cultures, and living together.
