Storyline

Wahdon retraces a Palestinian historical event through the poetic vision of the Lebanese writer, Talal Haidar. This parallel spiritual perspective integrates some of the symbols from Dante's Inferno, such as Dante's entry into a dark forest where he faces trials. One of these initial trials is when he meets 3 fierce animals, one of which is a wolf. The Palestinian commandos in my film faced difficult inner emotional trials before going to what they knew could be their death. In my film, Françoise has a symbolic link the guiding spiritual figure of Beatrice, who eventually leads Dante to the light. The symbolic link to Dante's work aims to place the Palestinian question in a mythological and therefore universal context.
