Awatif Aljadili

Palestine to The Met Film School, UK

Awatif is our first student to study at London's Met Film School and our first student from Gaza.

This talented 29-year-old already has an impressive filmography - her documentary on war-wounded children in Gaza featured in the January 2010 New York Times issue.

She hopes to hone her production and directorial skills while completing a degree at London's only dedicated film school.
