Heartbreaking storytelling from a war zone

Incredibly moving and thought-provoking work for the International Committee of the Red Cross, which has just won a Grand Prix prize at the 2018 Cannes festival for this short film (109 seconds long, not a film you will forget quickly)

Spanish agency Sra. Rushmore launched this as their second project for the International Committee of the Red Cross. Entitled ‘Hope’, it’s a global campaign focused on attacks on hospitals and healthcare workers, which are a daily occurrence in areas of armed conflict.

Shot in several localisations around Beirut, Lebanon, during two days, this spot tells the story of Raya, a girl who indirectly becomes a victim of this type of attack. Powerful stuff.
