Participation in the movie “Maharem. Mahram” directed by the great Arab director Mohamed Malas 2008

(The film’s story revolves around a friendship that develops between a refugee boy from the occupied Syrian Golan (who resides in the area of ​​“Ish Al-Warwar” on the outskirts of Damascus) and a girl who is the daughter of a cartoonist arrested because of his drawings. In this cinematic work, director Muhammad Malas discovers the fear of childhood

Mohamed Malas says about his film: “The film talks about fear, and its impact on the breaking of love.” “It’s not just big words,” he adds. But based on my awareness of my society, and my knowledge of its details in the contemporary stage, fear has formed a major feature, as it settles in people’s hearts, and it has a mysterious, wide, and multi-faceted dimension, it is not only economic, political or social fear, but rather it is a resident fear, dormant Deep in people. Fear and the breaking of love and friendship that develops between a boy and an eleven-year-old girl, is the basis of the film.

Against the background of this dramatic line, Malas exploits the story of his film to draw attention to the issue of the occupied Golan, and the psychological repercussions of this occupation on those who were displaced from their villages and settled in Damascus. He says: “The Golan does not disappear in this film. The boy – the hero of the film, belongs to a family that was displaced from the Golan after its occupation when his father was a young boy. Therefore, he played a role in establishing fear and searching for their roots. I see these displaced people who live in Damascus, as if they are suspended in the air. rootless)
