The Liberation Knights - فرسان التحرير


This timely film starring Syrian actor Adib Qaddoura was produced in the immediate aftermath of the 1973 October War. The story follows a Syrian brigade on the Golan front and focuses on individual stories of bravery, heroism, and sacrifice in pursuit of military victory. The film was a popular account that galvanized people to support the Syrian soldiers who committed everything to the war.

Acclaimed Egyptian artist Gassour designed this striking poster, using blood red hues to convey the symbolism of warfare and conflict. Qaddoura is at center, illustrated in a dramatic scene from the film, surrounded by the machinery of war. His fellow soldiers launch an attack beside him. This poster documents a turbulent time in Syria's history and the film is an intriguing record of the nation's response to the war.
