Considered a landmark in the history of Arab cinema and banned in Syria to this day, the documentary Everyday Life in a Syrian Village (1974) is director Omar Amiralay’s critique of the Syrian government’s agricultural and land reforms in the mid-twentieth century. The film was influential on the making of Manna’s Wild Relatives.
