The Devil's Drivers

These animated sequences were created for the documentary feature film THE DEVIL’S DRIVERS directed by Daniel Carsenty and Mohammed Abugeth. Chased by the army, two Beduin cousins smuggle undocumented workers through the Middle East. Filmed over the course of eight years, this documentary is a breathtaking portrait of human trafficking in one of the most dangerous regions of the world. The animated parts tell the history of Palestine and the ongoing war, using real news footage which was then rotoscoped and turned into stylized animation. 

THE DEVIL’S DRIVERS celebrated its world premiere at Toronto International Film Festival in 2021. More information about the film:
