Seven Songs of Becoming

Dear followers,
Seven Songs of Becoming is made in Palestine and Norway. This is a cycles of seven short-films about communicating in spite of cultural conflicts, war and deprivation. The Palestinian poet Fadwa Tuqan is an important voice in this cycles. Tuqan is considered as one of the greatest Arab pioneering, contemporary poets. Accidentally, I found this short-film when I was doing one of the assignments in the Photojournalism class for this year, I found it between the hands of one of the most compelling composers in Palestine, Rami Washaha. The nest photo exhibition will be showing this great character who absolutely inspired me and changed my life.

I hope you all will like it, feel free to share comment and discuss this with me. Special thanks to Rami Washaha who opened my eyes to a whole new world.

  7. I absolutely love it!
    I love the juxtaposition between the happy or up-beat songs with the quiet kind of low- beat poetry. Also, I love the contrast between the scens, and of course I love how Miss. Toukan’s voice was used in this video.
    You have found a great work Sabi!
    Many thanks to the composer Mr. Washaha.
