My Love Awaits Me by The Sea

1h 20m Documentary 2013

When director Mais Darwazah discovered for the first time the drawings and poems of Hasan Hourani, she felt the rapture of having found a kindred soul. Hourani had drowned a couple of years earlier while trying to save his nephew from drowning. A singular painter and poet, in his work he created a fantastical world where he was a character stuck in boyhood, unaffected by the prohibitions of the occupation of the West Bank in which he grew up. In Hasan Is Everywhere, a book he published shortly before his death, he lives underwater and sleeps in the clouds, consoles a lonely dinosaur, and falls in love with a fish.
