Shatter Hassan by Al Massad

29 Jan
An Arabic fairy tale that goes awy in the Netherlands when the invincible hero Shatter
Hassan has become a nameless junkie.

It is moving that the director (in a voice over and through the nostalgic images of a Dutch city
scored with arabic music) projects his feelings of being lost in this fairy tale character.

It finally becomes the story of the director trying to retrieve his lost childhood by attempting to
come to terms with the sense of belonging nowhere.

It is a story about being homeless in a city, being far away from home, having lost your own
country, your culture, your roots, your identity….
