Arafat, My Brother

Arafat, My Brother

A Feature film by Rashid Masharawi

Produced by Play Film, Atopic

Production year : 2005



    The Israeli law during the second Intifada prevents me from returning to Ramallah, where my home is. Our president Yasser Arafat is not allowed to leave Ramallah. I know personally Doctor Fathy, Yasser Arafat’s only remaining brother. He has a cancer which is being treated in Paris.

    Over a year spent in close proximity to Doctor Fathy, a unique relationship develops, dealing with his cancer and learning about the relationship between the two brothers and the life of the Palestinians.
