Alma moved us today with her stories and experiences during her art residency at Qattan Foundation in Ramallah Nov-Dec 2008 where she collected love stories from people there.
She talked about love.
Telling a tale of Mohammed the 40 year old divorcee who’s still in love, then another Mohammad, the tormented lover, then a third one too. Connecting and disconnecting. The deserted lover’s park, the lonely benches. Observing lovers. Romantic Indian films watched by men in the cafe.
Alma’s passion ignited hearts in the room. We laughed, we contemplated about our own love stories, we were moved.
This event by far, was the most entertaining event I have attended in years.
