Abstract

In this final transcript from the interview, Malas explains the many forms of memory at work in The Night, the impetus behind the making of Bab al-Maqam (2005), the importance of woman in his cinema, and his relationship to intertextuality in Ladder to Damascus (2013). He also discusses three projects that were never screened: The Euphrates (1978), The Cradle (2009), and In Search of Aida (2004), and concludes with a meditation on memory and forgetfulness.
