Half Libyan, half South African, former Londoner, I direct and edit documentaries, although at vastly different paces. My own films have taken up to 7 years to finish whereas I construct and complete numerous films a year as an editor. This becomes a strange place of directing directors, guiding first time filmmakers, imbibing worlds alien to mine, containing and creating another’s vision, manifesting the dreams of the subjects in the films and being taken by the voice of the material itself.
