The Barrier

Al Hajiz

Directed by Bassam Al-Thawadi
Bahrain, 1990


Al-Hajiz, the movie deals with social and emotional barriers imposed upon individuals by society and also with those that the individual imposes upon himself. The characters in the movie lack the ability to communicate with each other and therefore fail to understand their own emotions.
