What is that?

Mohammad Ala
by Mohammad Ala

This short film was made in 2007 and screened across Europe in various festivals The video is about father and son... but it could be ANY two people and the way they have treated each other... it wasn’t about a sparrow... the setting didn't matter...

The sparrow reminded the father of an incident in the child's life, and perhaps he wanted to share it with the son.

Most people are impatient with each other. The son should have asked if there was something behind the question after he asked the second time. This was a missed opportunity for connecting...

My father passed away three and half years ago. Baba, I miss you! We had great times together.

Love, your son.
