INTERVIEW | Hany Abu-Assad and Waleed Zuaiter

‘Omar is a movie that toes the line between different genres and different directions in narrative. Nothing is as it seems; the same can be said of its director, Hany Abu-Assad, who strikes a modest figure but is a veritable fountain of knowledge on all things cinema. Similarly, Waleed Zuaiter, who plays Agent Rami – the ‘villain’, for want of a better word – is an unassuming character, speaking about his craft with much passion and with zero pretension.’

Check out my interview with Hany Abu-Assad and Waleed Zuaiter, the director and star of the Oscar-nominated Omar, at HeyUGuys (click quote above or image below).
