The Anxiety of Living in War Zone: Project

Following the toppling of the late dictator Siad Barre on January 1991, atthe hands of tribal oppositions, Somalia had descended in terrible civil warsthat have been going on for more than twenty years, as selfish tribal warlordswage wars on other groups, in complete disregard for the safety and welfare ofthose unfortunate civilians caught entrapped in such war zones, in order toconsolidate their personal power bases through the control of additionalterritories, while cleverly securing the support of their tribesmen by thefalse argument that they are doing so solely to safeguard the interests andgood names of their tribes.

My project focuses on the civilians affected by such conflicts. As a directresult of that tragedy, the helpless youngster had to struggle and find ways ofsurviving within the war zone they find themselves in, often trying to escapean area considered relatively more dangerous to another considered less so.

This case highlights the terrible sufferings of those civilians in the thirdworld, who are caught up in war zones, subjected to unimaginable inhumansufferings. However, such sufferings are not necessarily confined to only onespecific country, but rather seem happening in many other places in the thirdworld.

Therefore, it is hoped that viewers around the world might somehow becometouched by the enormity of such highlighted sufferings, to the point that theymight consider ways by which they could help these unfortunate people tofinally find peace and rebuild their destroyed lives.
