Writer, Director and Indie-Producer Khalid EL – Jelailati is a film fanatic. He spent several years studying and dissecting iconic films whilst applying this knowledge to his own work.
As a result, Khalid has developed a formidable command of the craft. His authentic filmic style is influenced by his love for classic cinema. He obsessively seeks to grow his film knowledge and combines wisdom gained with hands-on experience. This allows his writing and directing to be both visually elaborate and narratively intimate. He works well with actors, and knows how to coax the best out of them.
Having been raised between two cultures – of an Arabesque Lebanon and a Spirited South Africa – Khalid leverages the experiences in these diverse environments to strengthen his unique visual identity. His work is dynamic, traditional and powerfully emotive.
