Susan Youssef director of 'Habibi'
To my readers, This is a letter from Susan Youssef, updating us on her film Habibi.
Habibati | Darlings,
With the support of
Sundance Artist Services
, we have launched
. As a truly independent and international film, we chose Vimeo on Demand as the platform that best suits our film and audience.
We are proud to have the support of the
in the Gaza Strip, so that I can attend and present Habibi
in Gaza on December 18. Of course my attendance is still pending permissions, but
we intend for the screening to happen with or without me. This will be my happiest moment of making this film: knowing that it finally screens in Gaza.
I am absolutely thrilled to return to Virginia this week, to present the film at
Old Dominion University
. After my trip to ODU, I will be in NYC for a while , so please reach out to me if you are in town.
Salamaat and thank you for all,
