Marouan Omara, 1987 is an Egyptian filmmaker. His films wander around unmarked territory between fiction and documentary. Using cinema and it's tools as a genuine mode of research, his films have a dreamlike notion of the surrounding and closeness to the everyday experiences of his society. He focuses on the characters’ dynamics that form the core of his film language.

Marouan’s films are based on collaborations in which he believes on its necessity as a tool of contemporary cinema. His films had won awards and screened internationally at several film festivals.
Omara's films distributed by Arsenal Institut Für Film und Videokunst e.v. Berlin, Germany, Tetraktys Films, Cyprus and are available at Doc Alliance Platform.
