In the film "Ibrahim Realms" the life of Bab al-Tabbaneh resident Ibrahim Farran takes center focus as one among many cases of alienation, drug addiction and also religious intolerance.Producer Dima Jundy said she was intent on making the film to illustrate how the value of human life is degraded in Bab al-Tabbaneh, whose people have no choice but to live in squalid conditions.The young director of the film, Remy Itani, seemed eager to capture people's emotions and document them.Itani previously directed two documentaries, "Furners at Home" in 2011 and "Invisible Citizens" in 2012 . However, her new movie about Bab al-Tabbaneh has a special place in her heart, and she was impressed, foremost by how the people of the neighborhood managed to find joy, despite hardship. Bassem Fayad is more than a cinematographer who films the shots Itani wants, but thinks along the same wavelength as the director, and truly understands her. His sharpness demonstrates a rare talent, and this is what emerged during the long hours spent editing the film.
