"Captain Abu Raed" competes at Sundance film festival 2008

We made it into Sundance. They just announced it officially and after a week of knowing this amazing piece of news we can finally tell people that this film that we been working on for the past 2 years is going to compete in the World Cinema Dramatic competition. This is a dream for all of us.
What is also exciting is that there is a Jordanian documentary called recycle by Mahmood Al-Massad that is in the documentary section of the festival.

Wish us all luck in Dubai and Sundance. :)

Beautiful Surprises

What is brilliant about shooting film is waiting for the film to come back from the lab, and nothing beats the feeling when you see a picture that you totally forgot you took. This image right here is everything i wanted it to be in my head, and i was able to line up my thoughts my feelings and my reaction to the moment i saw.
