In 2009 Lebanese born photographer Dalia Khamissy set out to uncover what happened to the estimated 17,000 people kidnapped during the Lebanese civil war. A year later Duckrabbit was commissioned by the BBC World Service to follow her story.
This was one of a series of 2D photofilms Duckrabbit produced for Médecins Sans Frontières as part of their 2011 fundraising and awareness campaign ‘MSF Delivers’.
