Director Biography - georges elias abi ramia, sarah charbel abboud

Georges Abi Ramia:
My name is George Abi Ramia, and I'm a 29-year-old filmmaker from Ehmej, Lebanon. I graduated from AUL Kaslik University in 2017 with a degree in radio tv and films. Currently, I work in the field of wedding and advertising photography, but my true passion lies in capturing authentic and realistic stories through documentaries.

Throughout my career, I have had several small-scale experiences, but my collaborative work with Sara Aboud on the documentary film "Kaab El-Day'a" stands out. We were both committed to portraying the authenticity, truth, and simplicity of the individuals living in this village.

"Kaab El-Day'a" delves into the lives of the people in the village, showcasing their daily struggles, aspirations, and the rich cultural heritage they hold. Our aim was to present a realistic and honest portrayal of their lives, shedding light on their stories and creating a connection with the audience.

I believe that documentaries have the power to bridge gaps, raise awareness, and evoke empathy. Through my work, I strive to capture the essence of real-life experiences and convey them in a thought-provoking and engaging manner.

I am deeply passionate about storytelling through the medium of documentaries, and I am eager to continue exploring new narratives and capturing the raw beauty of human existence.

Sarah Abboud:
My name is Sarah Abboud, and I am a 26-year-old human, artist, and music educator from Kfarbaal, Lebanon. I graduated from USEK in 2019 with a degree in Music Education and a teaching diploma. Currently, I teach general music classes and piano, and I am the founder and conductor of our village's cultural choir.

The love and passion I have for my village and its people have inspired me to collaborate with George to portray an authentic and unique image of the people in my village through this documentary. My goal is to introduce viewers to the beauty of my village in an artistic and engaging manner.
