Last year i got a chance to film a documentary about the Arab Children’s congress which took place in amman, and is organized by the performing arts center of the Noor Al-Hussein foundation.
Hamada who is featured in the video is one of the hardest working indivduals and he provided much needed comic relief throughout the 7 days of the congress.
At this particular instance we were at the international night and he picked up a camera from one of the photographers next to the stage, i saw him and followed his actions with my camera. I asked him to take a picture of me, and as you can see….it took him some time to find out how the contraption in his hands worked.
I then follow up to ask him the decieding question….Do you consider yourself a Paparazzi?
His answer makes me laugh everyday, he’s become our cheerup mascot on any day me and amin got tired of work or just bored of each other. Amin started waking up and watching this guy on his computer everyday so he can start his day with a smile, and when i came to start this new blog i couldn’t think of a name, and then it came to me….Bataranzi…so for you Hamada…so you can go into history as the frist person to use the word Bataranzi….
and as the old nabatean poet used to say
A Bataranzi a day ….keeps 3wad ( ili 7arag il masna3) away….
