Hi Viewers and welcome to this weeks Video of The Week. I went back over all the Videos of The Week and I noticed that I have never had a short documentary as the Video of The Week, so I went looking for one and this is what I came up with, A short documentary called The Art of Fighting. It is directed by Gavain Browne and produced by Alex Barnes and Gavain Browne. It tells the story of a refugee Hussain Sadiqi who fled the remote mountains of central Afghanistan as the Taliban stepped up their violin persecution of his people. This was to be the start of Hussain’s epic 20000km journey to Australia. 10 years later, this self confessed “nomad” is about to give up his new life in his new country to pursue a life long dream – a dream that was born over 20 years ago, when young Hussainn first saw a torn and battered picture of his life long hero, Bruce Lee.
This documentary has been selected in over 15 festivals and nominated for four awards and one award, Audience Award – Best Film, 2012 West End Film Festival. This doc is shoot beautifully, and is so well told it is hard to believe that is only 11 minutes long. It also a tale of hope even having to flee his country Hussain was able to follow his dreams, which show no mature what your situation is as long as you want something bad enough and you are willing to work hard for it, any thing is possible.
Have a look at it and let me know what you think by leaving a comment below also check out last weeks Video of The Week here. Thanks for reading I will see ye all next week until then keep on Viewing.
