More about me

I am a documentary filmmaker and editor who has explored a diverse range of topics for over 14 years. My work touches on social, educational and political issues, from a teacher and students performing under extraordinary circumstances (The Music’s Gonna Get You Through, 2010) to rebuilding a life in a former war zone (Amal’s Garden, 2012).

A multi-lingual Tunisian educated in New York and California, I bring international sensitivity to my editing, production and story development, while building transmedia narratives to enhance and further engage a constantly evolving audience base.

Two of my most recent projects are:

Revolution in Four Seasons

I co-produced and was an editor on A Revolution in Four Seasons, the story of two women with opposing political views fighting for their different versions of a democratic future for Tunisia, the country that sparked the Arab Spring. It premiered May 2016 at Hot Docs.

Twice Upon A Time

a feature length documentary about about the friendship between children of two different countries and generations brought together because of their common experience as war refugees. The film premiered May 31st 2016 at the Lebanese Film Festival, where it was awarded best documentary. It also an official selection at the Edinburgh Film Festival in June 2016.

I edit on Final Cut Pro, Avid and Premiere, on a freelance basis throughout the San Francisco Bay area. I am also available for story consultation and transmedia strategy and structure.
