Once upon a time, in an ancient city by the sea, a baby girl was born. She was the third girl for her parents, who didn’t have a boy yet. But she made them very happy.
This is because Mama had only one sister. And Baba had only one aunt. And they both didn’t want their two girls to be the only sisters for each other. Now they had a third girl. And she was to be called “Niam”. Niam is an Arabic word that means gifts and grants, or blessings from God.
Niam was a quiet child, as her mother attests. Born during the infamous Lebanese Civil War, this event largely influenced her life and art. Today, Niam Itani is an award winning screenwriter & filmmaker. She strives to make films about social issues; mainly against war, discrimination, poverty and injustice of all kinds.
