“Simulation of Mr. Yellow” is a love story about an old man in yellow who lives alone in war-torn city of Aleppo “why people still living in war-torn city?” that’s question I used to ask myself a lot, before I travel to Syria During my search, I watched so many Videos on net about War in Syria most of them were about the warrior, political side or refugee camp problem I get more and more confused by searching. because Each side only committed the other side forthe suffering of the people but none of them really care about people at allalthough, in those videos, I could watch the people who were still living inthe War-torn city. I used to pause the videos and looking at people faces andmade my own dreams about their life story, never could understand their purposeof living in War-torn cities and When I couldn’t find out any specific answerfor my question I decided to see and to show the part of life in Syria witchmedia usually doesn’t cover. Life of A person who is not in charge of anythingat war, a person who doesn’t care about the side of war a person who is not importantto anyone. and I meet Mr. Yellow in Aleppo.
