O snu (About a Dream)
HR · 2011 · DVD · 4 min
O snu (About a dream) is an experimental film made with stop- motion technique. It was a challenging work for me as a film maker. I found my self hooked with the question how can I revive the pictures from my night dreams, my own inner conscious, how can I show the irrational logic and rythm of dreams, the atmosphere of anxhiety. Absurdity and simbolic motifs make so much sense while we dream but as soon as we wake up and try to explain them, they lose their primar shape and a lot of times these stories sound ridiculous when we try to put them into words. " I ask my self, how can I explain a dream? With a painting? With a picture? A poem? Sound? ... Can I tell it with a film?

Osama El Wardani
18 days in Tahrir square was an inspiring and life learning experience. One of the lessons I learned is that to die in dignity is better thousands of times than living in fear and submission. Another thing is that participation and ones presence is better thousands times of following up the news at home. Because of this El Wardani a rap singer- did not stand by and watch what is happening in Libya so he held the camera as an excuse to travel under fire so how was his journey, what did he learn and see from his point of view? And how Osama El-Wardani directed his first movie ( Tahrir Ben Ghazi)?...
