The Hjazi Boy is an animation in sand of a story I heard on my travels across the Holy Land. The conflict in the Holy land has my attention, and I attempt to tell stories I have heard from my time there with respect to those whose stories they are. I do not wish to be seen as taking sides in the conflict as it is far more complicated than simply choosing who to sympathise with most. Instead I try to engage with the characters involved in the story, creating an awareness for the effects that such a conflict has on individual lives.
