Man of Ashes
Hachemi and his friend Farfat are part of a group of distraught young people. Hachemi’s forced marriage is experienced as a sudden turning inward, bringing back painful, repressed memories of their childhood, traumas that they carry into their long adolescence. Man of Ashes unveils a secret world, hidden from Arab society, that glorifies the power of men, their virility, which explodes in Hachemi’s impossible marriage… A huge scandal on its release, Nouri Bouzid’s film is one of the most audacious in Arab cinema.
