Born on the 6th May 1984, Nada Mezni Hafaiedh was from an early aged exposed to different cultures due to her diplomatic parents. Saudia Arabia, USA, France, Canada represents a pool of developments of her passion for cinema.
At the age of ten, her hobby was already assumed, she used to produce amateur films and video clips by putting her friends and family as actors.
She goes to Montreal to finish her studies in business Administration, but soon changed her curriculum to follow her passion for filmmaking. Graduated from School of cinema in Montreal, she opened her production company to write and direct several projects which will be fast appreciated by the canadian community.
On her return in her country of origine, Tunisia in 2009, she decided then to write her first feature film. What is more intense than producing a map of Tunisian society: Hekayat Tounisia 2010 (Tunisians Stories). Upon the Shadow (Au-delà de l'ombre) wants to express how much difficult is to grow and protect your sexual freedom in a homophobic society where it is taboo or strongly disparaged.
