More Info

I am  juma haydari, I was born in Qarabagh district, GHazni province of Afghanistan .

Because of the lack of security,I left Afghanistan and fled to Indonesia in 2014.

I came to Makassar city, I have been living without any basic rights like , working , study in school or university and has not been supported for small essential things. Then in August 14, 2014 Makassar immigration transferred me to detention center and I detained till my process be done. in Makassar detention center we were treated tough like prisoners. So Although i tried to improve. I kept studying English and Indonesian languages and i attended online film directing courses and read many books. I also wrote a novel that i hope it would be to published if i resettle in the third country. After about three years of living in the detention center, i was freed and transferred to a community house in Makassar in July 2017. Since then, i have been living in Makassar city.

My Passions

I love filmmaking, writing short stories, reading books and I have made a few short films and hope to be given an opportunity to study filmmaking and make more movies.

Recently I wrote and directed a short film by the name (Twin) and the film has been submitted to 14 international film festivals.

All the short films I have already made, I was shooting by rental and borrowing cameras,microphones and laptops from people.

Now i want to have my own camera, laptop and microphone so i can make more films.

By your kindly helping and generosity my dreams will come true .
