Good as New (Mitel Al’Arous)
Made in Qatar - Ajyal Youth Film Festival 2015
Moayyad has bigger dreams than working in his father’s modest bakery. When the young Syrian man leaves his home for Qatar, however, he finds that life abroad isn’t what he thought it would be. Working as a mechanic, Moayyad struggles to find his place and build a life in his new city, while thoughts of his home are never far from his mind. 'Good as New’ is a quiet, poignant film that explores intergenerational tensions and the power of familial roots.
