Ask me anything


Men, I would like to give this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue, too. To date, I’ve seen my father’s role as a parent being valued less by society. I’ve seen young men suffering from illness, unable to ask for help for fear it will make them less of a man. I’ve seen men fragile and insecure by what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality, either. We don’t want to talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that they are. When they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence. If men don’t have to be aggressive, women won’t be compelled to be submissive. If men don’t need to control, women won’t have to be controlled. Both men and women should feel free to be strong. It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by who we are. We can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom. I want men to take up this mantle so their daughters, sisters and mothers can be free from prejudice but also so their sons have permission to be vulnerable and human, too and in doing so, be a more true and complete version of themselves - Emma Watson for HeForShe UN campaign

So many of you don’t know me, obviously, but if you follow me you must know I like film. I have recently become an associate producer on a documentary titled ‘Welcome to the Circus’.  It is currently in the final stages of post-production and getting ready to make the film festival circuit. It was a crew of entirely all women which is just awesome in the film industry. Please check out and like their Facebook page at  on.fb.me/YJAnaS   

Welcome to the Circus is a story about Palestine rarely told; One of optimism, hope, and the pursuit of a dream in the occupied territories. Set in the West Bank city of Ramallah, The Palestinian School welcomes the LIDO, a circus school from France into their home. With less than a month the two schools must come together to create a mobile circus for the Children of Palestine.



Together, the two schools unite when faced with a difficult dilemma; What if not everyone is allowed at the final show in Jerusalem. What will they do? Cancel the show or perform even if the circus is made up entirely of the LIDO. 
Travel in Palestine is an obstacle course of permits and checkpoints further complicated by the Palestinian ID Cards. The majority of the students at the Palestinian Circus school have the West Bank/ Green ID which means they are only allowed to journey along the green line to other Palestinian territories. Visiting Jerusalem is prohibited without a permit.  Most of the students at the Palestinian Circus School have never seen Jerusalem despite it being a mere 7 miles from Ramallah. In Palestine the occupation interferes with every aspect of daily life; For the circus this is a constant source of struggle. 
In the newspapers and on TV, we’re always bombarded with extremes and these headlines shape the way we define other cultures. Rarely, do we think about what effect this can have on other people. With the escalating conflict it’s even more imperative that we get this film out there in order to prevent words like Hamas and terrorism from becoming synonymous with Palestinians.
