Top 6: September 12th 2018
To coincide with the International Day of the Disappeared, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and Stoked release a poignant short film, ‘The Waiting’, which chronicles the haunting emotions felt when family members disappear as a result of civil war and conflict. Directed by globally-awarded ECD, Areej Mahmoud, ‘The Waiting’ opens on a family scene, a mother and two children, waiting in a living room, in the midst of the Lebanon Civil War during the 1980s. Tension builds as the mother looks worryingly at the door. ‘He’s Late’, she says. As she looks back to her newspaper, the scene begins to subtly change. Days, weeks and seasons flicker by. As the years pass, the family age but they remain frozen, waiting for their father who never returned. During the film a silence reigns over the family, where the presence of absence is duly noted with careful sound design.
