Mahmoud Massad, 78 min, Documentary, in Arabic with English subtitles, 2008

Abu Ammar is a former Jihadist in Afghanistan who, disillusioned by the chaos there, came back to his hometown in Jordan. His attempts to build a normal life and support his eight children and two wives in an impoverished neighborhood of Zarqa – a city haunted by the specter of Al-Zarqawi - are constantly stumbling.

“Recycle” has won 7 Cinema in Motion Awards at the San Sebastian International Film Festival, Best Cinematography Award at Sundance Film Festival, the Dutch Film Critics Award at Netherlands Film Festival, Jury Special Mention at Warsaw Documentary Film Festival and Jury Special Mention at Rotterdam Arab Film Festival.

Special thanks to Mahmoud Massad for his cooperation.
