“The Long Way Home” documentary – interview with the director Ariel Nasr

Samaa interviewed the Producer/Director of the documentary, Ariel Nasr. She asked him about what motivated him to present this particular story and what difficulties he has encountered. She discussed with him the art of featuring horrific abuse, like torture to which AbouSoufian has been subjected, with such a light touch. It is implied but not graphically depicted.
Listeners may recall that Amandla has covered extensively the ordeal of AbouSoufian Abdel Razik in its various stages as it was unfolding.
Currently, although Abousoufian has been able to return to Canada, he cannot travel freely and is still battling a court case against CSIS. Amandla will keep you informed of the latest, as always.
