The Iraqi Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Antiquities mourned the writer Adel Kazim, who died today Sunday at the age of 81, after he enriched the drama with works that were established in the conscience of the Iraqi and Arab scenes.
The ministry said in a statement that the late was a “dramatic writer distinguished in his style, diligent in expressing the local reality through his long artistic career that has spanned half a century in theater and television, preserving his principles in winning the major human issues in a decent life.”
Kazem was born in Baghdad in 1939, and graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts. He wrote his first work, “The Moss”, in 1962, to present a series of works that were bold in handling and presentation.
Among his most famous theatrical works are “The Flood, Al-Mutanabbi, and Tamouz.”
Also presented to the TV series are “The Eagle, the Wolf, the City’s Eyes, and Bint Al-Maidy”.
He was honored by several theater festivals, including the Arab Theater Festival, in its sixth session in Sharjah in 2014.
