Made in Qatar - Ajyal Youth Film Festival 2016
A terrible car accident put Hassan into a wheelchair and it looked like the 30-year-old runner would never walk again, let alone make it through another marathon. But Hassan is not one for rules or being told ‘No’, so every day saw the determined man trying to walk again. One day, during an attempt to cross the kitchen, he fell flat – but found he could crawl to his goal. He never looked back. Masterful satire makes ‘9956’ as heartfelt as it is hilarious.
