We got the award for Best Sound And Music at the Nuit Des Mabrouk! The award was handed by Christian Jeune, the Head of Cannes Film festival's film office (no less) and honored Lama Sawaya (sound designer), Rana Eid (sound supervisor) and my work on the sound and music in The Valley, the feature film directed by Ghassan Salhab.
One of the joys of composing music comes from collaborations with visionary filmmakers on truly inspiring projects. With "The Valley", Ghassan was awarded the "Best Director From The Arab World" prize at the Abu Dhabi International Film Festival last night!
Ghassan is an incredible director with extensive knowledge in both classical and contemporary music. I feel honoured to have him as a dear friend, and to have had the opportunity to work with him for the second time!
