Time is perpetually offering the same kind of scenario to people, to humanity, it is just the view point and the way it is observed that changes, History doesn’t so much as repeat itself but has the hallmarks of constant rehashing and frightening ability to make us understand that as a species with so much going for us, so much potential to grow and bond, we keep making the same mistakes and wondering why our planet is ultimately doomed.
Cast: Louai Alhenawi, Alia Alzougbi, Roskar Nasan, Sanaa Wehbe.
Storytelling is such an important facet of human nature that it strides, like music, across the many diverse and wonderfully different regions and countries of the world. Our own culture, derived as it is originally from many distinct and rampaging races and creeds, is full of folk tales and parables from many customs and backgrounds that it surely is a thrill when the sounds and stories of another area of the world comes and adds more influence to life.
