My first feature documentary to premiere at SXSW Festival

By February 5, 2019Festival, Film, Syria

Glad to finally be able to unveil my first ever feature documentary!

For Sama tells the extraordinary story of Waad al-Kateab, a young Syrian woman who filmed her life through five years of the uprising there.

A journey through love, war and motherhood, it is unlike anything you’ve seen on Syria before, an unparalleled insight into the female experience of conflict.

It has been a great honour and privilege to work with Waad on bringing her life story to the big screen for the past year and a half.

Also exciting to report that the film will have its world premiere at the SXSW festival in March!

Channel 4 and PBS funded the film that was produced by Channel 4 News and ITN. You can read the press release here: https://www.channel4.com/press/news/channel-4-and-pbs-frontline-secure-global-exclusive-emmy-award-winning-filmmakers-waad

Hopefully this is only the beginning of the film’s journey…
