Woman’s Work. A short film to live without fear

Amid the bombs, the dead and the lost hopes in Syria - that is, a “men-only zone” -  a female freelance journalist writes articles about the war.

Two years later, she recounts her experience through this short film that mixes animation, live-action and textual elements to throw darts on issues like gender, human self-destruction and the ability to live without the shadow of fear.
