Haneen Zayed, a student with special needs, dedicated her graduation project at Qatar University to producing a documentary about Al Jazeera Mubasher’s coverage of the war in Yemen.
The documentary “Selfie of War”, produced by a student in the Department of Mass Communication at Qatar University, sheds light on the life of journalist Mohammed Al-Qadi, and the dangers he faced during his field coverage in mountains, deserts and cities.
Haneen Zayed said that the film aims to highlight the difficulties and challenges facing the war correspondent during his work between bombing, fire and the barrels of guns, and how he can follow the course of the war or estimate the number of victims and material losses.
Hanin explained that the killing of colleague Sherine Abu Aqleh highlighted many aspects of the war correspondent’s work and the dangers he is exposed to.-
In turn, Ayman Gaballah, director of Al-Jazeera Mubasher, said that covering the war in Yemen is one of the most important coverages that the channel carried out to convey the repercussions of one of the most important revolutions in the Arab world, stressing that the war correspondent must have a passion for the value of journalism and conviction in what he presents.--
Colleague Muhammad al-Qadi pointed out that covering the war and going to the areas of clashes depends on initiative and choice and not on coercion, which “makes the journalist more eager to report the details of the battles and their accompanying repercussions,” according to him.
The following is the video produced by Haneen Zayed.
