Step by Step by Oussama Mohammad

Oussama Mohammad's short film follows the stages of submission one has to pass through in society, and the transformation of the individual mindset from unmediated co-existence with nature towards an acceptance of violence towards those dearest to oneself. By filming the daily efforts of village people and the very basic education system, the film portrays young villagers whose choice is either their parents' hard farming life or that of a migrant laborer in the city. Trapped between religious and political ideologies and completely fascinated by authority, these young peasants choose the army.
