Director Biography - Rania Iraki

Rania Iraki moved to London in 2012 to gain a BA (Hons) in Film and Television Production at the University of Westminster. Working in several roles in production, Rania specialised in directing and has pursued her passion ever since. She has directed several short films, including Lily and the Revolution which was highly commended at the Royal Television Society Awards and Sour Milk which was in the official selection at the International Great Lakes Film Festival in the US. She has also directed several other projects in film and theatre. Between 2014-2016 she was director Danny Hiller’s assistant on his feature film Out of Innocence. Rania is currently working on developing her father’s diary “The Diary of a Doctor in Tel Al-Zaatar: A Palestinian Refugee Camp in Lebanon” into a feature film script. Rania is very passionate about telling stories of people whose lives have been neglected or underrepresented, such as her father's and many other people around the world. Coming from a background which has been especially misrepresented in the film industry and the media, Rania aims to give spectators a different perspective of her religion and ethnicity.
