Meedo Taha is a Lebanese filmmaker based in Los Angeles and Beirut. His stories explore identity and belonging through propulsive subversions of genre, such as a Rashomonesque short film entitled The Incident, an existential murder mystery inspired by his novel A Road to Damascus, and a horror musical melodrama inspired by binge-watching bootleg Hollywood and classical Egyptian cinema. His work has received support from the Doha Film Institute and Sundance Institute, and recognition from the Directors Guild of America and Francis Coppola’s American Zoetrope Screenplay Competition. Meedo has mentored screenwriters, directors, and visual storytellers around the world, including Chapman Univeristy, the American University in Dubai, and Cine Qua Non Lab in Mexico. He earned a PhD in Architecture from the University of Tokyo and an MFA in Directing and Cinematography from UCLA.
