"Xenophobia" is a short film that aims to raise awareness about the issue of xenophobia. I collaborated with Tom van Stam in the creation of this project in 2017, at a time when xenophobia was a prevalent concern due to the recent terrorist attacks. Together, we developed the story, crafted the art direction, directed the actors, and managed the camera work. The short film highlights how fear of different cultures can lead to quick and unfair judgments by individuals, including those in positions of authority such as the police.
