Two Hands: a film by Fabio Wuytack.

(ENG) Two Hands (DOCU 5 min)

(Nederlandse synopsis onderaan)

Palestine has only four cardiac surgeons and Mohammed Tamim is one of them. In 2003 he came to Belgium to specialise in paediatric surgery. But the second Intifada has made Mohammed a war surgeon and every day he is fighting his war. But despite it all, Mohammed has a dream that keeps him alive. Two Hands is a touching document about an intense personal grief. Director Fabio Wuytack creates a poetic visual bridge that goes beyond the here and now.

(NL) Two Hands (DOCU 5 min)

Palestina is slechts vier hartchirurgen. Mohammed Tamim is één van hen. In 2003 kwam hij naar België om zich te specialiseren in pediatrische ingrepen. De tweede intifada heeft Mohammed tot oorlogschirurg gemaakt. Elke dag levert hij zijn eigen strijd.
‘Two Hands’ is een beklijvende getuigenis over het intense verdriet. Ondanks alles heeft Mohammed Tamim een droom die hem in leven houdt.

Regisseur Fabio Wuytack creëert in ‘Two Hands’ een poëtische visuele brug die het hier en nu overstijgt.
