Prior to moving to Jordan, Abdulhadi-Sukhtian started her career as a journalist at the WDR television station in Cologne, Germany, where she participated in the production of the current affairs behind-the-news program “Zum Tage” as well as several documentaries.

Abdulhadi-Sukhtian continues to be an avid reader, curious traveler and is passionate about keeping the environment clean and beautiful. On movie-making, she says: “Movie-making is the art form of our time. It can reach, entertain, edify, and influence a much wider audience than the novel ever did. In this respect it is a powerful medium and so can play an important role in bringing people and cultures together.”
