The Dupes (Arabic: المخدوعون; Al-makhdu'un) is a 1973 Syrian drama film directed by Tewfik Saleh and starring Mohamed Kheir-Halouani, Abderrahman Alrahy, Bassan Lotfi, Saleh Kholoki and Thanaa Debsi. Based on Ghassan Kanafani's 1963 novel, "Men in the Sun", the film portrays the lives of three Palestinian refugees after the 1948 Nakba by following three generations of men who made their way from Palestine to Iraq on the hope of reaching Kuwait to pursue their dreams of freedom and prosperity. The Dupes received very positive reviews from critics and won multiple awards locally and internationally. It was entered into the 8th Moscow International Film Festival.[1]
