This animated short film with no dialogue follows Nool, a black macaque who lives in an Israeli zoo. He crawls out of his cage to get a closer look at war missiles, not realizing how terrible the consequences of this decision would be.

Nool conveys the extreme situation of war in a gentle but powerful way through a well-structured narrative and 2D animation. During a military conflict, the response of a terrified monkey aptly shows how the psychological experience of war impacts an individual. This film made me reflect on such trauma and the impact it can have on people’s lives.”
