MOHAMED BIN ATIYA
DIRECTOR & WRITER
Mohamed’s breakthrough debut HEDI became the
first film since PARADISE NOW to appear in competition
at the Berlinale where it scooped awards
for both Best Director and Best actor in 2016. His
second feature WELDI, about a father who is in
search of a son who has joined extremists in Syria,
premiered last year at Cannes in Director’s Fortnight
before touring the world’s festival circuits.
Both films were produced by Dora Bouchoucha
and distributed by MAD Solutions for the Arab
world and by Lux Box internationally.
