Salah received a grant to finance his documentary. 

 

What is your artistic background?

I was an actor in an amateur theatre in Aleppo in Syria, and I also directed short films and I was a freelance journalist.  

 

How do you see your profession today?

I'm looking forward to entering the world of documentary cinema thanks to the film I'm working on.

 

How do you see yourself in five years? In 10 years?

I would like to return to my country, from which I was expelled, to make more films after gaining experience during my exile.
