Hannan Turk at the “Doors of Hell”
Egyptian director Ehab Radi is scheduled to depart for Alexandria, Egypt in the next few days to determine the locations to shoot his upcoming film “Abwab Al Jaheem” (Doors of Hell), also to be shot in Cairo.
Egyptian actress Hanan Turn has been nominated for the leading role, along with Ramiz Jalal, Sharif Ramzi and Majdi Kamel.
The story was written by Ibrahim Eisa, and filming will commence in September.
Presently Hanan Turk is engaged in extensive work sessions with the cast and crew of the upcoming film “Wafa,” along with script writer and prominent Syrian actor Duraid Laham.
The film, directed by Mohammad Abu Yousef and written by Mohammad Salmawi, portrays the life of Palestinian Martyr Wafa Idrees.
“I have always dreamed of portraying her on the big screen,” declared Hannan.
The actress was fascinated by the script because it reflects the humanistic aspect of the martyr and how she reached the decision to sacrifice her life for the national Palestinian cause.
Hanan researched Wafa’s life to be become familiar with the nuances of her character, and viewed the short documentary film about Wafa that was screened at a film festival in France two years ago.
Hassan stated that she strives to portray a believable image of Wafa, who symbolizes “true faith and courage.” The location of filming has yet to be decided.
