Gaby Zarazir

Gaby is a Lebanese producer and filmmaker. His films have been screened globally. He strives for comedy and madness; an original approach to cinema that mocks the most serious things. He studied film with the life goal of keeping on holding a camera at 140 years old (or perhaps it will be the camera holding him).
