Hana Elias


Hana Elias is a Palestinian American filmmaker who worked as an assistant editor on three documentaries—one followed three women leading feminist movements in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq. Elias's first short documentary, 'The Rooftops of Jerusalem," was selected for festivals internationally in 2014. Since then, she is driven to focus on stories about the complexity of belonging, for those growing up in places where their identity and home are contested and politicized. Elias has achieved a master's degree at the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, and has completed her short documentary "Holding Fire" with the support of the Pulitzer Center.
