Watch the trailer
Under a fanatical dictatorship, where any kind of self-expression is forbidden, nonconformists express themselves through movement in response to daily terrors. Modern dance is their form of resistance and their secret code. This animated short is a portrait of a dysfunctional society about to implode.

Chadi Aoun

Animation director and storyteller at heart, Chadi Aoun wears many creative hats. Born in Beirut, he grew up in Middle East influenced by the diversity of the many cultures he came across. After two years studying Fine Arts in Paris, he graduated with a Master’s in animation from the Lebanese Academy of Fine Arts (ALBA), after which he founded Yelo, an animation and design studio collaborative. He swirls and twirls between various creative projects and stage performances to quench his insatiable passion for dance and movement. Chadi’s latest animated short SAMT(Silence), tackling the theme of dance and freedom, was awarded Best fiction” in the 2016 Lebanese Film Festival, and has been touring international film festivals since, winning several awards, including the Silver Tanit at the Carthage Film Festival.
