Meet the Artist: An Interview with Filmmaker Aref Haj Youssef


In this episode of Meet the Artist Series, the documentary Filmmaker Aref Haj Youssef talks about his feature documentary film “Al-Maari’s Head” which was supported in the fifth edition of the Laboratory of Art Programme. The film accompanies the journey of the Syrian plastic artist Asim Al-Basha as he sculpts the head of Al-Maari for the second time after he had previously created the same head in the early eighties. The film also documents the artistic and personal long journey of the Syrian artist who lost his artworks in Syria, which he may never see again.
