3- Edson Oda
Edson’s feature, Nine Days, is a beautiful, soulful and unique film.

2- Eslam Hozayen
Have you ever heard someone say “You have to watch it again to understand it”? because, well, that’s this guy’s work in a nutshell. Often a psychological roller coaster when you give his work a go, very abnormal yet unique way of story-telling.
