New film ‘The Idol’ features The Freedom Theatre actors

Don’t miss ‘The Idol’, a newly released film by acclaimed Palestinian filmmaker Hany Abu-Assad (Paradise Now, Omar) about the life of Mohammad Assaf from Gaza who became a worldwide sensation after winning the Arab Idol competition in 2013.

‘The Idol’ was filmed partially in Jenin, including at The Freedom Theatre, and features several actors from The Freedom Theatre; Ahmed Al Rokh, Nabil Al-Raee and Ameer Abu Alrob, as well as Eyad Hourani and Saber Shreim, graduates of The Freedom Theatre School, and last but not least our housekeeper Miriam Abu Attiyeh. When the film was made The Freedom Theatre hosted the crew for some days, turning the theatre into one big film set. Sadly, Mohammad Assaf didn’t come to visit!..
