THE WAIT­ING

Campaign Middle East - - CONTENTS -

To co­in­cide with the In­ter­na­tional Day of the Dis­ap­peared, the In­ter­na­tional Com­mit­tee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and Stoked re­lease a poignant short film, The Wait­ing, which chron­i­cles the haunt­ing emo­tions felt when fam­ily mem­bers dis­ap­pear as a re­sult of civil war and con­flict. Di­rected by glob­ally awarded ECD Areej Mah­moud, The Wait­ing shows a fam­ily age­ing but re­main­ing frozen, wait­ing for their fa­ther who never re­turned. Dur­ing the film a si­lence reigns over the fam­ily, where the pres­ence of ab­sence is duly noted with care­ful sound de­sign.
