An independent Syrian filmmaker and production company director with over 10 years of experience

An independent Syrian filmmaker and production company director with over 10 years of experience as a director and producer of advocacy campaigns and human stories. I am always looking to shed light on the darker corners of Syrian society, tackle social and cultural issues related to human rights, and tell compelling stories.
I have contributed to the production of several important documentary works that have won international awards and nominations in various roles such as directing and cinematography.

I played a Co-director role in the film “Last Men in Aleppo,” which was shortlisted for the Oscars and won the Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival. and also contributed as a photographer to the film “The White Helmets,” which won the Oscar for Best Documentary Short.

In addition, I directed several films that received nominations and awards in various competitions, such as “Clustered” at the 2015 Pixel Mobile Film Festival, “We Will Return, My Love” as part of the Voices from Syria and the Region project supported by the European Union,

and “Face to Face” as part of a training program affiliated with the Bidayyat Foundation. I have collaborated with many international channels and agencies in Syria, producing visual news stories for CNN, TRT World, Al Jazeera English, ARD, ITV News, and Alaan TV. He also worked in content management and development for several Syrian civil society organizations and collaborated with international organizations on campaigns to support human rights and empower communities.
