What We Like: '25YL' interview with UAE filmmaker Nayla Al Khaja

We are big fans of the dynamic and charismatic Nayla Al Khaja and have followed her burgeoning career closely, so this interview made for fascinating reading. In recent years, she has been ranked among the top 50 most powerful personalities in Arab cinema and the 100 most powerful Arabs under 40 by Arabian Business Magazine.

But, personally, I know her from spending more than a week watching films with her and actress Freida Pinto as members of the Short Film Jury at the Dubai International Film Festival some years back, so have a notion of her film taste, sense of humour and vibrant personality.
