The wonders of the sea are not necessarily under water; in his boat, one can see the seven wonders...
He moves from darkness to light with the sharpest of sights. He passes the strongest of obstacles with endless will. He catches "kheir", what he calls his fish, from a sea as deep as a demon’s eyes.



In the silent emptiness his reverberations draw hope. It may be his hobby, or just his source of living, but this poor man gives life, rich with health, to many. He lives between two blues, but never does he give up until he reaches the light of the open seas.

So too in reality, the Bridge was witness to cinematic events. During the 1919 Revolution trains were blocked from passing over the Bridge by "Anaber" workers as part of the civil disobedience movement…
