About the Director

Amiralay used cinema as a means to engage citizens and reflect their struggle for freedom, democracy and social justice in Syria and the Arab world. His approach to documentary filmmaking continues to define generations of filmmakers. Amiralay’s final film “Everyday Life in a Syrian Village”, is banned as it contains a strong critique of the government’s failure to provide basic amenities to Syrian citizens.
