Ahmad Momeny (Afghanistan)

How the idea for your silent story was born?

As someone who lived in the war, I would like to make some story about the people in the war, after two years I found the concept of the story and started making illustrations that show the story.

What's the story about?

“MI CASA” is about a girl (civilian) who lost her home during bombing day, she has to abandon her home and escape to save her life, she is heartbroken and misses her home. Although she tries to save her life, dose not successful, and during the bombing she dies. Her soul finds a home in another world. The day after she died, war (bombing) was going ahead.
