Ihab Mokayed

filmmaker and entrepreneur

I started film and storytelling at the age of 17 and never stopped learning since then.

However, being born in Aleppo, Syria forced me to take a break and become a refugee twice by the age of 23. One failed attempt that ended up as an award-winning feature documentary that paved the way to continue living in Paris, France. A place I'm proud to call home.

Today, I do film and manage my startup blank.paris, a platform that matches users with responsible fashion brands according to their values.

the unexpected

refugee

I start with this because it is thanks to this feature documentary that I was able to have a second chance to live. A film that literally changed my life.
