Born in Egypt, Tahani Rached settled in Quebec in 1966. After attending Montreal`s École des Beaux-Arts, she was involved in community action until she made her first film, Pour faire Changement (1972), a documentary produced by Le Vidéographe, which set the tone for all her future work. In 1979, her first feature-length film, Les Voleirs de jobs, a documentary on immigration, demonstrated her ability to capture reality. This was followed by a series of six half-hour documentaries for Radio-Quebec on Quebec`s Arab community. She was a NFB staff filmmaker from 1980 to 2004. The above image was taken at the 2010 Hot Docs festival in Toronto.
