‘World Martyr’: Saudi animated film about Mohammed al Dorrah
A cartoon film entitled “World Martyr Mohammed al Dorrah” has recently been released in Saudi Arabia. It was scripted by Rawdah al Hudhod, directed by Osama Ahmed Khalifa and produced by Mathab al Shahd Agency for Audio Production and implemented by Alaa Corporation in their private studios in Turkey, according to the daily al Riyadh.
The World Martyr is a 3D Arabic animated film that tackles the Palestinian issue and tells the story of a child named Omar. Omar is an American national of Palestinian origin whose father sends him to Jerusalem, which he immigrated from after the carnage of Dair Yasin. The son is shocked to see Jerusalem different from the images he has about it in his mind.
Omar faces death risks more than once and discovers the brutality of Zionists and their crimes against Palestinians and children in particular. He decides to return to the US and convey the real picture to the world through a documentary film entitled Way to Freedom.
The 50-minute film costs amounted to one million Saudi Riyals.
The film’s duplication was done in Jordan and its characters were played by prominent actors.
The story of martyr Mohammed al Dorrah comes in the film through the story of Amjad, cousin of Omar who visits Jerusalem and a number of scenes showing the real moments Mohammed al Dorrah died as martyr -- Albawaba.com
