This short film is the product of 4 workshops in animation organized by Beirut Art Center and curated by Joan Baz in 2015. The film is based on the 1966 children’s book " The Bomb and the General " by Umberto Ecco, a simple story that sheds light on war and conflict.
The work re appropriates the old tale and places it within the political context of the middle east region today.
