Director Biography - Rawan Selim El Chami

Rawan's Biography

Rawan Selim El Chami, 30 years old. I'm a film directing graduate who studied at The American University Of Science And Technology. I took a long pause from cinema because I was dealing with chronic health issues. When I returned, I wanted to channel everything I went through and put it in my work.
My main goal in filmmaking is to tell personal stories through my work. That's how my first short film "SEAHORSE" "حياة آدم" was created.
In addition to my passion in filmmaking and storytelling, I developed a strong communication ability through collaborations with professors and industry professionals.
Last but not least I want to be known for someone who inspire and motivate others.

Director Statement

This film was made to provoke certain types of emotions that are usually considered taboo. This story happened in real life but obviously reversed. As a storyteller, I wanted to trigger the male perspective in such story and make them for a second be in a woman's shoe.
