About this submission

I had the honor of being introduced to Seif-Eldeen Saqallah in university. Seif's resume was far from scarce. From helping refugees in Jordan to teaching Arabic to starting a beginner level wrestling career, Seif's experiences manifested into a versatile individual. What struck me as the most fascinating, though, was all he has been able to accomplish while living with an immense handicap. Through this film, I hope to showcase all sides of Seif, with his disability put to the side. I hope you are left with a feeling of reverence and self-reflection, just as I have been capturing his story.
