“Ketaba ala Thalg” movie – File Photo
CAIRO – 2 October 2017: The Carthage International Film Festival management has chosen “Ketaba ala Thalg” (Writing on Snow) to be the opening film of the 28th edition of the festival.
The film is an attempt to deal with ideological, political, and geographic divisions in Palestine and the Arab world through portraying people who believe they know the truth, rejecting the idea of coexistence despite the difference. These characters believe that coexistence would neutralize all segments of society with their ideological differences into one segment with one ideology, that ideology being the one suitable for achieving their desired gains.
“Ketaba ala Thalg,” was directed by the Palestinian director Rashid Masharawi, and stars actors and actresses from different Arab countries, such as famous Egyptian actor Amr Waked, veteran Syrian actor Ghassan Massoud, Palestinian actress Areen Omari, Palestinian actor Ramzi Maqdisi, Lebanese actress Yomna Marwan and others.
The 28th edition of the festival will kick off from November 4-11.
The Tunisian festival was launched for the first time in 1966 and is considered to be one of the oldest festivals in Africa.
