BBC trending - Saudis defiance gone digital
When Ashley Choukeir and I were approached by BBC to do these animations, we were deeply touched by the true stories of these three Saudi men.
“When it comes to freedoms, human rights organizations will tell you Saudi Arabia doesn’t have the best track record.” In a country where resistance is almost impossible, where freedom of faith, sexual orientation, even freedom of expression are denied, some people are seeking virtual freedom. These three animation videos are about three courageous Saudi men whose defiance has gone digital.
