Take 5 w\ Oualid Mouaness

1982 by director Oualid Mouaness and Movie Buffs Productions, Shady Makary. Actor,/Singer Cha'lee Blythe had the opportunity to have an in depth interview with the duo. They are doing great things!

On Dec 11 2021, Shawn M. Goudard as VP and acting President of The Tampa Bay Film Society, co hosted the Florida Premier of 1982 with Shady Makary, the coordinator of the event and the founder of Movie Buffs Productions. The film 1982 was directed by Oualid Mouaness . 1982 has won accolades and has been featured in the official selection of the Cannes Ecrans Juniors, the prestigious youth sidebar of the Cannes Film Festival. Oualid Mouaness is known for producing seminal music videos with artists David Bowie (The Stars & The Next Day), a video-record and an Emmy Nominated live concert performance for Annie Lennox (Nostalgia). Other music video works include Lana Del Rey, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lopez, N.E.R.D, Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Gnarls Barkley, Keith Urban, Rihanna, and Lady GaGa among others.


I was honored to interview director Oualid Mouaness . I’ve always been a film buff and can’t remember the last time a film captured my attention and rendered me speechless. By far the most ethereal film worthy of the Best Film awards earned thus far.

1982 was filmed from the innocent eyes of 10-year-old children on their last day of school while sonic booms are heard and felt during the war in Beirut. Their schoolteachers were seen from the mature eyes while assuring the children and keeping them safe from harm. I could clearly see through the children’s and adult’s eyes and each actor became their character.

The common thread throughout Oualid’s film is unconditional love expressed in subtle behaviors of those on screen. His use of cinematic shots and quick cuts through the trees and the elusive expressions of first love as seen through Mohammad Dalli’s character Wissam’s are captivating as Nadine Labaki’s character, schoolteacher Yasmine’s grief and impending doom masked by her love and concern for the children in her class. Gia Madi’s character, Joanna is quietly understated as she tries to solve the mystery of who leaves love letters in her locker. The reflective quality of the swimming pool and the uncommon arrival of pigeons landing inside the school were beyond description as I found myself literally inside the film as an observer. Prepare yourself for a bigger-than-life ending. A must-see film on the big screen for all ages to embrace.
