TEHRAN (AIPFF) – Two Mukebs (service centers) in Iraq displayed a number of films belonging to the Ammar Popular Film Festival (APFF) for Arbaeen Marchers heading from the Iraqi city of Najaf to the city of Karbala on foot.
The march is aimed at marking the Arbaeen, anniversary of the 40th day after martyrdom of Imam Hussein and his companions in the land of Karbala.
The films were displayed by Tollab Al-Moqawimah Al-Hosseiniya Mukeb and the Al-Hashad Al-Shebi showcase that were located in route to Karbala to offer the marchers services.
Students from Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Tajikistan and Nigeria watched the short film “Al-Bait” in the Mukeb. Al-Bait is produced with focus on the resistance of people in Gaza Strip.
Furthermore, the film “Borderless, Love I and II”, Seraj, Valad and Al-Bait were also screened at a Basij Center located at Amood (street light pillar) 910.
There are 1458 Amoods installed on the route of marchers from Najaf to Karbala where Iraqi people demonstrating their generosity have installed camps to provide all kinds of services including foods such as Kabab, rice, roti, sweets, juices, dates, dry fruits, drinking water and many other things. In these camps even massage services, shoe polishing, sewing of torn clothes or shoulder bags etc were provided free of cost to Zaireen (pilgrims).
To guide the marchers, different organisations have established Mukebs (service centers) for serving marchers as it was unique experience that on every 50 feet they installed toilets, place for offering prayers and even furnished rooms with blankets for taking rest.
Arbaeen marks 40 days after the martyrdom of Imam Hussein (AS), the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and third Shia Imam.
Each year, a huge crowd of Shias march toward Karbala, Iraq, where the holy shrine of Imam Hussein (AS) is located, to perform mourning rites.
In the past few years, around 20 million pilgrims from all over the world, including Iran, took part in the mourning ceremonies in Iraqi holy cities marking Arbaeen.
APFF films have been previously displayed in other Iraqi cities like Baghdad, Karbala and Hillah.
