Edit and animation for a Documentary about the refugee, Qusay. We stitched together Qusay’s story using his old nokia phone footage combined with hundreds of hours of footage from the DWB archive database, and few clips from of my personal video archive.

“Follow the incredible journey of Qusay Hussein—a young man who barely survived a suicide bombing in Iraq, rebuilt his life at a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Jordan, and is reinventing himself again in America. This short documentary is an intimate portrait of a refugee—one person among millions who’ve surmounted unimaginable obstacles to find safety. It’s a reminder of our shared humanity, and the ripple effects of compassion.”
