The Media Department of the al-Abbas’s Holy Shrine, represented by the al-Kafeel Center for Artistic Production, produced a short film about the incident of the meeting of the companion Jabir Ibn Abdillah al-Ansari (may God be pleased with him) with the captives from the family of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), after their return from the Levant to Karbala on the twentieth of Safar. The film was named (Anakhat bi rahlik) and has a directorial and artistic vision that combined modernity in presentation, accuracy and reliability in the correct information gleaned from the most accurate history and biography books, coinciding with the Ziyarat Arba'een.
The film is directed by Professor Azhar Khamis, head of the documentary and cinematographic unit at the center, who explained to the Al-Kafeel network, saying: “No art work can surround even
a small part of the sad Karbala incident and its bloody chapters, but in the al-Kafeel center with the support of the department, we presented this work within our available capabilities, to shed light on this incident - the incident of the meeting of the companion Jaber Al-Ansari, may God be pleased with him, with the captives of Al-Hussayn, peace be upon him - and the performance of the Ziyarat rituals on the twentieth of Safar, preceded it by answering to a question that is how he knew while being in Madinah about the Karbala tragedy, and how did he arrive at this time? Based on a number of accurate historical sources."
He continued: "The historical information that this word relies upon was picked and selected from the most accurate Hadith and Biography books, which were presented to a committee that investigated and reviewed them in terms of historical and intellectual integrity."
Khamis concluded, "The work was filmed in the outskirts of Samawah, depending on the human expertise of the center, its apparatus and photographic equipment, and it was completed in a record time."
It is noteworthy that through the documentary and cinematic films unit at the Al-Kafeel Center for Artistic Production of the al-Abbas's (P) holy shrine, many cinematic documentaries have been produced in a decodramatic manner, the first of which was a film about the biography of (Abu Talib) the father of Imam Ali (peace be upon them), and the other film dealt with the biography of The Lady of Quraysh (Khadija the Great); the mother of Our Lady Fatima al-Zahra (peace be upon them), and the third film deals with the biography of (Malik al-Ashtar al-Nakha'i), in addition to the movie (Roozbeh) about the character of the great companion Salman al-Mohammadi (may God Almighty be pleased with him).
