Nadia El Fani
Nadia El Fani was born in Paris in 1960 to a Tunisian father and a French mother. She grew up in Tunis, but has frequently moved, shifting from one shore of the Mediterranean to the other. In 1990, she settled in Sidi Bou, a small village perched on a hill overlooking the bay of Carthage. After 22 years of odd jobs, mostly related to veterinary medicine and pet grooming, she finally got the opportunity to work in film. She has worked as an assistant director for such film-makers as Romain Goupil, Roman Polanski, Franco Zeffirelli, Nouri Bouzid, Alexandre Arcadi and Herbert Ross. Bedwin Hacker is her feature film debut as a director.
