Year of residence

2023 - 9th edition

"In my new feature film I hope to work with a female protagonist since my last two works explored male characters. My films look at the inner psyches of the characters and their hidden emotions as they react to a repressive society. Mariam is not a victim but a survivor - someone who discovers her true potential by challenging herself. I want this story to be an example for young girls in patriarchal societies around the world, so that they won't be afraid of going on a tough journey, because in the end something beautiful will bloom - when they unleash the power they have within."
