Mais Darwazeh

Filmmaker Mais Darwazah visited Palestine for the first time, to research her upcoming feature documentary My Love Awaits Me by the Sea (working title). The film attempts to merge between what’s real and fantasized. The fictional element comes from trying to understand concepts such as nostalgia, desire, memory, dreaming and fantasy. And the reality stems from seeing how the present Palestinian generation, are dealing with the occupation of everyday. The film focuses on Hasan Hourani’s art work - an artist that was able to dream beyond the restrictions of the everyday.
