The Grant

Duration: 0:14:59 | Channel: Short Films   Subtitled in English   Jordan  
When the capital Amman was under lockdown out of the COVID- 19 pandemic, there was no semblance of modern life, neither people nor cars in the streets. Suddenly, a filmmaker hears the sound of bells from his window, only to discover that they are the sound of a flock of sheep. With no crew or equipment, the scenery turns into an inspiration for the director to make a documentary film about the shepherd's life during the lockdown. The film director meets the shepherd who broke the curfew to feed his sheep, and for days the director was filming with him like a thief, afraid of being caught by the local authorities. Director: Muhammad Khabur Producer: Sa’ed Arouri
