DescriptionHamsa treats the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through the lens of a Jewish Israeli girl. This is a message of love which aims to teach that humanity conquers all prejudices; at the end of the day, we are all the same. "Tikvah", which is the young girl's name, was not chosen randomly. With the Hebrew meaning of Hope, it represents a new hopeful future for both peoples, without the prior stigmas the older generations still hold onto. One thing to remember is that the ethnicities can be reversed and the story will remain the same. Not only that, but the story is true and universal to many other ethnic conflicts around the world. Using 3D Animation provides a platform that transcends all social barriers and can captivate one's attention to address a serious topic by using lighter visuals.
