This film is about Damascus, an 11,000 years old city, the most ancient & precious of cities, set to the poetry of the world famous Palestinian poet / author Mahmoud Darwish.

More than three years have passed since the idea inception up to this moment. This project was my companion during my staying abroad, it was like a friend and an enemy at the same time, sometimes I spend hours working on it, and sometimes I leave it for months.
Now after two month of heavy work, I've finished it, and I would like to present it to you … I hope you like it.

Follow me on:

الفيلم يتكلم عن مدينة دمشق, مدينة يعود عمرها إلى أكثر من 11 ألف سنة, يرافق الفيلم قصيدة بنفس العنوان من تأليف وإلقاء الشاعر الفلسطيني المعروف محمود درويش

أكثر من ثلاث سنوات مرّت منذ انطلاق الفكرة إلى هذه اللحظة. كان هذا المشروع رفيقي في الغربة, لقد كان بمثابة العدو والصديق بالنسبة لي فأحيانا اشتاق للعمل عليه فامضي الساعات هناك وأحيانا أكرهه لدرجة تركه بالشهور.
بعد أكثر من شهرين من العمل المكثف, ولله الحمد, انتهيت من العمل عليه, وأنا اقدمه اليوم بين أيديكم هدية … اتمنى أن تنال إعجابكم.
