Meet My Producing Partner Mohammad
Have you read about Mohammad yet? Check out the "Team" section of our Kickstarter page. Mohammad has been instrumental in making this film a reality. Our relationship began the day I first met Sajed. Mohammad was giving Leila and I a tour of Qalqilya. Since that day, we have been attached by the hip - or Skype that is. Mohammad has worked as a line producer, assistant director, sound engineer, translator, fixer....the list goes on.
So I wanted to share with you a short clip of Mohammad discussing the significance of Sajed and the X Games meeting with Israeli skaters. Why is Mohammad in the film? Well, Mohammad used to be a very important campaign organizer and human rights activist in the West Bank. He helped begin the BDS movement and has represented Palestine all around the world. Jimmy Carter and Tony Blair thought he was important enough to give them both individual personal tours of the West Bank.
