The film explores the fifty years of artistic contribution of the daring Syrian author Mohammad Malas. An exile from his home town of Quneitra, he provokes audiences to contemplate loss, memory, and home. From the 1967 War and Palestinian camps in Beirut to the songs of Aleppo and the political tragedies of Syria, Malas exemplifies what it means to be an author and intellectual. The film takes you on a unique cinematic journey where creative cinematography becomes a visual conversation with the author’s own five decades of work.
