The Canadian poet Doyali Islam's award-winning poem 'Water for Canaries' concerns her metaphorical narrative meditation on a photograph taken during a ceasefire after the bombing of Beit Hanoun in 2014. Animator Suzie Hanna has collaborated to create a short poetry animation using hand cut stencils and paint to emphasise the chaotic atmosphere and the fragile reflective celebration of life in the midst of destruction.
