CANNES – Mohanad Yaqubi, a filmmaker with Idioms Film based in the Palestinian city of Ramallah, says he is trying to train young generations to use new technology like Canon 5D cameras and Final Cut Pro. Yaqubi says he tries to present stories that are different from those on the news.

“We think we have a different story to tell, more than only the conflict or what’s happening in the Middle East,” says Yaqubi. “It’s a story of people that we need to develop and flourish, and we want to use digital environment and training to develop that.”

Beet.TV spoke with Yaqubi in this video interview at MIPTV.
