Mohammad Abou Chair
I came to this world, without identity or nationality, in the first second of life and was stripped of all kinds of rights, except for education, for 28 years, dragging a suitcase of life experiences behind me and learning on daily basis.
I’m curious about “the other” as much as I‘m curious about myself, I walk around the streets and around my thoughts, trying to find creative ways to help change my surrounding, mixing the fiction with the reality and presenting the in-between.
I interview people like me, people who never had the chance to be heard, and recreate a visual narrative that will have an impact on the viewers’ experience. By doing that, I aim to create this ripple of goodness around us, I dive with my viewers on an emotional journey by answering questions of identity and origins and questioning the answers themselves.
In a world where a lie travels faster than the truth, I aspire to build a network that can be based on raw honest materials by the people themselves.
I’m Mohammad Abou Chair, a Palestinian refugee, stateless, graphic designer, and aspiring filmmaker.
