AR: For the film “For What Worth Living,” I was looking for producers who believed in the film, who were willing to take on the challenge, who had the qualifications and experience to make the film. The film was shot in Arabic, and I didn’t know the language, so I memorized the text and always had an interpreter with me to make sure everything was pronounced correctly. In 2018, I wrote and directed a short film about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict called Something to Live For. After graduating with a degree in communications, I worked in the Israeli media, covering not only everyday stories but also war and terror, and collaborated with Keshet Production to produce documentaries about major terrorist attacks and kidnappings in Israel in the 1970s and 1980s. AR: I co-wrote the feature film Samir, a recent adaptation of The Count of Monte Cristo, about a Middle Eastern man accused of terrorism and sent to Guantanamo Bay prison. AR: My hope is that after watching my film, viewers will reflect on the complex reality we live in, ask questions and participate. I am currently in pre-production on my first feature film, Maya.
