Unlocking Doors of Cinema is a feature documentary exploring the fifty years of artistic contribution of the daring Syrian auteur Muhammad Malas.  Malas, an exile from his home town of Quneitra, provokes audiences to contemplate loss, memory, and home.   From the 1967 War and Palestinian Camps in Beirut, to the songs of Aleppo, and the political tragedies of Syria, Malas exemplifies what it means to be an auteur and public intellectual.  Unlocking Doors of Cinema takes you on a unique cinematic journey where creative cinematography becomes a visual conversation with the auteur’s own five decades of work.
