The deputy also called on lawyers to file lawsuits against Monther Rayahna, without mentioning his name, describing his defense of the film as a media failure.-
For his part, Munther Rayahna responded to the attack, stressing that the film shows the suffering of a group of people and the state of marginalization they are exposed to, and insults are not his primary goal, indicating that the reactions to the film were not negative.--
He added that he accepts the criticism of specialists, and not absurd speech that is not studied or based on artistic grounds, noting that the film won international awards.
