Ihab Mokayed is a filmmaker and entrepreneur based in Paris who started at the age of 17 after winning an opportunity to write and direct his first short film in 3D with Twofour54 in Abu Dhabi. He never stopped learning since then.
However, being born in Aleppo, Syria forced him to take a break and become a refugee twice by the age of 23. One failed attempt ended up as an award-winning feature documentary that paved the way for another successful attempt. It is thanks to the film that I had the chance to continue living in Paris, France.
