Between the Lebanese civil war and the Syrian occupation, some ex fighters find themselves trapped right in the middle! Searching for their freedom, they decide to head to the city of Tripoli for a new life. There, they settle in the flea market, the Sunday Market, which soon becomes more than just a market to them....it becomes the place where they find their freedom! Directed by Yahya Mourad, Sunday Market: Tripoli is distributed in the Arab world by MAD Solutions.

Residing in Tripoli, Lebanon, director and cinematographer Yahya Mourad, has participated so far in numerous international and regional festivals and workshops with his short film Belonging: Tripoli. After his graduation in 2015, he has worked on a number of personal and professional projects including short experimental documentaries, besides music video clips and commercial Ads. Yahya always creates the visual language that reflects peopleÂ’s and placesÂ’ spirits in the scene. Despite the diversity of the projects, he always adds his own touch and originality to the project.
