Qatar Film Institute
FATIMA (10) tiptoes through the family home one night, peering through a door to see her father BABA (38) tending to her dying GRANDMA (92). Baba asks Fatima to say one final goodbye, but she flees to her bedroom filled with sorrow and despair.
Hassan Al-Malki Al-Jahni is a Qatari filmmaker. He graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in Media, Industries, and Technologies and a concentration in film and Middle Eastern studies.
Intrigued by animation and worldbuilding, he took up writing and directing his first animated short Emsahar. His work is inspired by local and regional culture and a need to bring Arab stories to the forefront of global cinema.
Currently, Al-Jahni is pursuing his MFA in Film and Television at USC.
