Ahmed Saleh is a Jordanian writer, director, and film producer of Palestinian origin. He holds a master’s degree in digital media from the University of the Arts Bremen, and another master’s degree in writing and directing from the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne.

He spent most of his school years in Germany, where he lived for a while. He was not born in Palestine, but he used to visit it, and each time it left in his mind details and stories that he wished he could tell in his own way and as he saw them with his own eyes.

The focus of the events of the movie My Eyes
He started writing short stories as a way to communicate his ideas, but he did not find enough interest from readers, so he turned to films as a place through which he could reach the largest number of people.

It is an 11-minute short film. The events of the film My Eyes tell the story of the strength that grows inside the body of those who live under injustice and suffering.

The idea for the film was inspired by an explosion in which two boys were victims. They received the same injury. The strength of the scene made their injuries inspire them to force people to come together to help the two boys.

The title of the film was The Eye That Saw a Bomb Explosion while two children were playing quietly in their camp. The incident left a lot in his mind. He narrated it with music and puppets.

He finds a poetic language in creating the virtual world of dolls, and the drawings mitigate the force of shock to convey scenes of hope from within the pain.

What is common between the real event and the puppets is that they are out of reality.
