STORIES FROM THE FIELD logo competition

Competition Details

Fly Away

by Nili Shani

Inside a white film strip we see a fersh green field and hovering above it is a fly. the fly that is often seen as a symbol of neglect and is connected to hunger and poverty, seen for example, on the faces and bodies of hungry african people, is here the complete opposite. through the background of beautiful blue sky in a summer day and the green grass growing, the fly is transformed to the symbol of a better future, still humble, but much better. the fly is free and an abundance of fresh plants awaits him. this whole scenario is bounded by a film strip corresponding with the fact that this is documantry film festival. the logo is aiming to show the hope and growth possible rather than focusing only on the hardship.
