My Wasteland is a short animation about Nada, a Palestinian refugee, who finds herself catapulted from Paris into the inside of a country’s borders that she’s never been to. With a lost sense of time and space, she lives out her worst nightmare.
My Wasteland is a short 2D animation that has received two scholarships:
- scholarship from SACD France in 2020
- the Pause Programme by College de France in 2021 where I completed the pre-production phase while in residency at the école de beaux Arts in Bretagne Lorient till May 2022.
Background of concept and story:
Conceived from a vivid nightmare I had in summer 2018, I wrote it as a short story first. From that point on, I adapted it into a script and have been working with producer Mely Bourjac
