‘Peoples’ Conditions’: Realistic Drama from Day to Day Life
The young Syrian director Firas Dihni began shooting his new social series based on a story by screenwriter Wafiq al Zaee’m who inspired it from peoples’ talks and their living and social circumstances.
This marks Firas’s debut in directing a 25-hour TV drama series after the various TV features and musical videos on the Palestinian uprising.
Costarring in the new series is a group of Syrian drama stars from various art generations including Hussam Tahsin Beik, Abdel Rahman Al Rashi, Mua’tazz Owaiti, Rana al Abyad, Laila Sammour, Vilda Sammour, Essam Abji, Salim Kallas and others.
The sites of shooting have been selected in Damascus, Aleppo and Latakia because the series is based on the related-separated episode principle, as is the case with the Syrian drama these days.
Al Zaee’m told the UAE daily al Bayan, “the series belongs to social drama genre with many situations and events derived from the real day to day life. I took the main stuff of many episodes from the real day to day words, and social and living conditions of people because I am sure reality is the more credible than the attempt of writing from fantasy which should be based on the status quo too.” -- Albawaba.com
