Director’s Statement

Victim” is a short film that tells the story of a boy who attempts to rescue a goat from being sacrificed during Eid al-Adha.

In many religions and ancient traditions, animals are brutally sacrificed for purity, forgiveness of sins, or the fulfillment of wishes. In some traditions, these acts even lead to a bloodbath in the streets during holy days. In this film, a young boy, who has grown attached to his goat, tries to save it from his father. He is willing to sacrifice himself to protect the goat from harm.

In this film, we aimed to challenge this mindset and ask people to consider: Can the torture and killing of an innocent animal, which feels emotions, has eyes, and has blood flowing through its veins like us, truly bring us good? How can someone seek freedom and peace through the captivity and torture of another being?

We are confident that taking the lives of creatures perpetuates a cycle of violence, suffering, and killing.
