2011 // FRANCE 24 "THE BIRDS"

France 24 is an international French news channel. Very popular in the Arab world, it has been a major source of information during the Arab Spring of 2011, especially through Twitter. To illustrate this, we represented Ben Ali, Mubarak and Gadhafi in a film referencing Hitchcock’s famous movie, « The Birds ». In this film, more and more blue birds continue to observe the 3 dictators before finally overthrowing them.

Role: Creative, Art Director

To emphasize the reference to the movie The Birds, we have represented dictators in the exact positions as Tippi Hedren on the original posters. Similarly, each dictator has been represented in the typical iconography of the film era.
