Today I will Live

The biggest lie about modern conflicts is that they are fought on battle fields. People who can’t flee live in the middle of wars. This story is about them and the neverending war in Afghanistan.
This short has been shot on a smartphone (with FilmicPro) and it is reminder about forgotten victims of forgotten wars.

Director’s Statement:
Covering wars should not just be about firefights, we should tell more about everyday life of ordinary people, the one who risk to die every day only to go to school or to work. That’s the real essence of modern conflicts and the most hard to explain to your audience
