Director’s Statement

In many religions, countless animals are tragically killed in the name of God.
Victim” is a poignant and thought-provoking short film confronting the age-old tradition of sacrificing animals in the name of God, purity, and forgiveness, prevalent in many religions. Our intention behind creating this film was to stimulate critical thinking and challenge the established norms surrounding this practice.
We firmly believe that taking their lives in the name of purification and forgiveness does not absolve us of our sins but perpetuates a cycle of violence and suffering.

Our intention is not to condemn any particular religion or belief system but rather to encourage a critical examination of our practices. We implore viewers to consider alternative paths toward atonement and compassion.

The film invites individuals to consider alternative paths to seeking forgiveness and purity. Our message is clear:

  • Plant a tree as a symbol of atonement and Reconnect with nature.
  • Lend a helping hand to those in need.
  • Embrace kindness instead of resorting to acts of killing.

Let us come together, embrace the inherent value of all living creatures, and strive for a world where every being is treated with respect and dignity.
