„My French cameraman Michel Humeau and the soundman Jean-Louis Ughetto are heroes: the first carried a ten kilogram sync camera, and the second a twelve kilogram Nagra walking 800 kilometers through deserts and high mountains under the bombing of the Royal Air Force. It’s thanks to Michel that I was able to give a voice to the voiceless, for the first time in the Middle East, due to the use of sync camera. [...] However, both had a very male dominated outlook and were, in those days, blind and often unsympathetic to the avant-garde feminism of the Front." (Heiny Srour interviewed by Mary Jirmanus Saba, Screenslate, 2019)
