    Rashid Masharawi

    Palestine

    Rashid Masharawi was born and raised in the Shati refugee camp, Gaza Strip. He is a self-taught film-maker. After a decade of working and establishing a name as a film-maker, Masharawi concentrated on organising workshops to give young Palestinian film-makers a chance to acquire knowledge in the field of cinema by working on actual productions. Thus, while his fiction features such as PALESTINE STEREO, LAILA’S BIRTHDAY, CURFEW, HAIFA and documentaries like LIVE FROM PALESTINE have received international theatrical and television distribution, awards and critical recognition, Masharawi has continued to live and produce films in Palestine. Although, he considers the value of his international recognition very important in reinforcing his situation as a Palestinian film-maker, he considers himself more as an artist and director, rather than a Palestinian partisan.
