AS THE POET SAID

Genre documentary | Length: 65mins | Year of production: 2009
An evocative and lyrical paean to the life and times of late Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, this thoughtful film sees director Nasri Hajjaj (Shadow of Absence) taking us on a journey through Darwish's life. He tours the cities and towns the poet lived in, meeting contemporaries, writers and lovers of his work while overlaying this mosaic of memories and reflections with readings of Darwish's works throughout. This heartwarming tribute is a fitting epitaph to a man whose words and dreams have inspired generations.
