in Tartouss Cinema Club, I watched, for the first time, a different kind of cinema,
in which heroes were real people who live like us, go around about their lives and are neither super heroes nor their stories are epics. A cinema that puts the daily details of these people under the light of a microscope. I felt that this cinema speaks of me, I, the teenage boy in a small town on the Mediterranean sea, who is occupied with the sea and nature. I felt that this cinema resembles me, and the club drove me to delve deeper in it on the screen and inside myself.
