The Black Land
A fairy tale animation, with a metaphorical story of the rape of my homeland. The beautiful woman representing Baghdad, who has lost her children and soul to the wars and destruction. The woman attempts to find an answer for her future but revisits the past, told through coffee reading – a traditional fortune- telling method in the Middle East.
