Zaayan Jappie studied film at UTS (NSW, Australia) and ITESM (Mexico). Her first film Rima; about a young Muslim who wears the veil and works in the modified car industry in Western Sydney was selected for various local and international film festivals, including the Dubai International Film Festival, Dungog and Arab Film Festival. She also worked in LA assisting Luke Doolan, an oscar nominated director/editor. Eve is my next special project, the script was guided by producer Daniella Ortega.
