Wasim ghrioui
Military Blanket
Doc. expérimental, Autobiographical | hdv | noir et blanc | 3'50'' | Syrie / Allemagne | 2017
“Military Blanket” is going back to the memory of the day when my father died. It describes the bureaucracy of death, in a military hospital. Growing up is basically we slowly witness people we know dying around us. After my father died and the war started, I lost many people I know, but I chose to talk about the story of my father?s death, because death was still holy back then, death was capable of teaching me, death was the most incredible proof of life.
