Acclaimed Bahraini writer and film producer Farid Ramadan had died after health problems, local media reported. He was 59.

Born in Bahrain’s area of Al Muharraq on November 4, 1961, Ramadan made a big name as a story writer since the early 1980s. He also worked as a journalist and wrote several radio and TV programmes.

Ramadan, moreover, wrote screen plays for several feature and short films, cooperating with directors in Bahrain, the UAE, Iraq and Palestine. He was awarded a slew of Bahraini, Gulf and Arab prizes during his illustrious career. His last novel was “The English Ocean” published in 2018.

Prominent cultural figure

The Bahraini Authority of Culture and Antiquities mourned Ramadan, calling him a “prominent cultural figure”. The agency said that the late writer has boosted his homeland’s name in the Gulf and Arab community of creativity.

“He was an example of the non-stop innovators and left behind a legacy and an output that will remain immortal in our Bahraini, Gulf and Arab cultural memory,” it added in a statement.

Ramadan’s works strikingly explored migration to the Gulf and socio-economic transformations in the region.
