Ya Watan to me is a reminder that you must move forward in search of necessity for soul, for love, for home, for survival.
Visually I wanted to capture a stark, dry and dead landscape making it unfamiliar yet beautiful and magical at the same time.
Transporting the viewer to an unknown place. Creating a stylized world between talent and environment, Alsarah and Nahids performance set the tone of boldness, honesty and unity. The world is a combination of live action, post and visual effects. We shot the video with our friend and DP Wail Gzoly who wonderfully captured the spirit of the world.
