Ahmad Saleh: Writing a Touching Story that deserved an Oscar
4. May , 10:00 - 14:00
It should be bigger than life. Watching a film can’t be like standing in an ordinary place, observing an ordinary life. What comes before achieving that? If the event we want to write about is bigger than us, how can we be able to retell it? And after writing it, how can we involve the team to transform the script to pictures and sound as big as the real event? In this seminar, Ahmad Saleh will be sharing detailed thoughts about this topic while taking you through the process of writing his film “Ayny”.
AYNY (My SECOND EYE)

A cruel war has taken two brothers’ home. Their mother protects them and is anxious about something could happen to them.
