Meeting Nour Al Sharif

Nour al Sharif and IBecause of our tight time table, we were only able to sit for one documentary in the Alajzeeara documentary festival. The one we saw was a Radio Canada production entitled: Maher Arar, detailing the story of a Canadian/Syrian citizen who was arrested and deported to Syira on suspicion of belonging to al-Qaeda. Unfortunatley the film was absolutely crap. Technically, it was very poor and the content was sensationalist, unbalanced and lacked any real deep research. I hated it!

Nevertheless, the outing itself had a wonderful upside, as we were sitting one row in front of famous Egyptian actor Nour Al Sharif. I got really excited when I saw him sitting right behind us so I jumped up from my seat and asked if I could take a picture with him. He was very sweet and extremely down-to-earth. We even shared the same popcorn while waiting for the movie to start. I think I should write this down: I munched on popcorn with Nour al-Sharif. Here is a picture taken via Amal and her Nokia mobile.

    Yes Iyas, it takes this long to leave Qatar. And I’m worried that they are going to turn me away at the airport. I don’t believe that I’m leaving for good.

    Oh wow. that is awesome. I only came to know this actor in the recent muselsel (soap opera) that was very comedic, the one where he was having a mid-life crisis. but my parents know of him and say great things about him. am gonna show this pic. to my mom natasha and im sure she will, “Eh, shou hada? (my mom says hada while i say hatha) Hada Finnan ekbeer.”
