Unshowy camerawork and an understated score both place the emphasis on the largely impressive and naturalistic performances.
It’s a scenario with twists and turns that are reminiscent of Sydney Pollack’s cinema.
A Palestinian born in Kuwait in 1985, he studied in San Francisco before returning to Bethlehem to make films about the realities of life for young Palestinians. His first short film, LESH SABREEN?, premiered at the International Short Film Festival in Clermont- Ferrand in 2009 and screened at over 60 international festivals. Alongside making documentaries and short films which have met with success at festivals worldwide, he also works as a cinematographer and film lecturer. AL-HOB WA AL-SARIQA WA MASHAKEL UKHRA is his first feature film.
