  • Rest In Piece

    Ajyal Competition - Ajyal Film Festival 2022

    Amidst a cacophony of shelling, Midyan is forced to flee his war-torn home. Packing only a suitcase of his dearest possessions, he embarks on a perilous journey into the unknown. Weary and starving in a desolate wasteland, poor Midyan resorts to eating the objects he has packed. The effects are monstrous, yet they give him the strength to carry on through the scorching desert. A beautifully crafted clay animation, ‘Rest in Piece’ shows us the courage and resilience of displaced peoples.
