The work, which was supposed to be shown during the previous Ramadan, was delayed due to forced filming being stopped due to the spread of the Corona pandemic.
The series takes place between the 1960s and the current time and deals with the story of Miramar (Slav Fawakherji) who escapes from her family with the help of Murad (Mehyar Khaddour), a person who is a popular hero to challenge society on “Chicago Street”, which was known in Damascus during that period Where intellectuals and fashions gathered, and intellectual and social discussions took place.
Instead of the attention of the followers going to wait for the date of the presentation of the first episode of the series, which was said to be considered one of the largest dramatic productions, the focus was on the poster image showing Slav Fawakhirji and Mehdar Khadour, so that comments could be launched from all sides, as some social media pioneers directed their arrows. Towards Fawakherji and “The Kiss”, and they accused the work makers of “stirring up instincts”, and these abusive comments did not calm down until this moment, which stirred reactions in the face of these people, given that those who criticized the poster image and the promotional video have a superficial, backward look at an unseen work Light yet, so focus went on what is instinctive and distant from the world of acting and artistic roles.
Fawakherji even reprinted the poster of the famous movie “The Nightingale of the Dark Brown” Abdel Halim Hafez and Nadia Lotfi in “Abi Abi Al Shajarah” in response to the critics.
A large number of media representatives and actors participated in their interactions with the uproar raised about the “Qibla” poster, including the fourth-dress media, who said: “The world did not sit on the drama poster # Chicago Street because the kiss that did not get more dangerous to our societies than corruption, murder, intolerance and atonement Glory to love and art in a time of ignorance and darkness, a tribute to the creator Slav Fawakherji and Mehdar Khadour.
