Al Walad Wa Al Bahr (The Boy And The Sea)
Once there was a boy who loved drawing the sea. One day, he dove into the sea, hoping to escape war. However, he was trapped between screens that had appropriated his story. The international media captured Alan Kurdi’s lifeless body on Turkey’s shores. And they never let go.
