With open eyes (video, colour, 76', 2009)

 

The film follows four female film directors all originated from various Middle Eastern countries (Egypt, Jordan, Palestine), in a moment of their life and work. For the first time these artists will move from behind the camera to tell us about their eye behind the camera.

 

The editing is voluntarily set as independant portraits in both image and sound conception. The portraits include a set of interviews, photographs, film extracts, storyboards and music to give an insight into their vision, in a plural dimension.

 

This film has received the financial support of DEDI (Danish Egyptian Dialogue Institute) and the award for best feature documentary at Les rencontres de l'image Festival, 2009.
