Portrait : Chabname Zariab

I’m a writer and hopefully a movie maker very soon.

 

Born in Afghanistan,  I left my home country, with my mother and my older sister, at the age of 8.

I grew up in a very literary family. I studied law and Real Estate.

Great cinema enthusiast, I participated in a contest which was worth to me being the prize-winner of Ile de France within the framework of Youth Award at Cannes Festival in 2008.

Subsequently, I wrote a script for a feature-length film, “Second State” which is currently under development.

“The Afghan pianist,” my first novel has received several Awards including the Mediterranean Award for Students.

Today I live and work in Paris.
