The Syrian artist Bassem Yakhour mourned the death of the Syrian director Muhammad Ferdous Atassi, who passed away on Sunday at the age of 79.
And “Yakhour” published a picture of the late through his official account on the “Instagram” website, and commented: “Professor and director Ferdous Atassi, who has accomplished many beautiful works … mercy for his soul, may God inspire his family and relatives patience and solace.”
The Syndicate of Artists and the Ministry of Information in Syria mourned director Mohamed Ferdous Atassi, who died of complications from Corona.
The late director, one of the most prominent Syrian directors, was born in Homs in 1942. He studied film directing in Czechoslovakia, obtained a master’s degree, and has been a member of the Artists Syndicate since 1971, and held the position of head of the directors department on Syrian television.
