Born in Beirut in 1978, writer, poet and director Wael Noureddine began his professional career as a journalist. His films describe actual situations in ways that are litterary and critical. They try to capture the physical and mental scars of conflict while resisting subjugation and defeat.

In 2002, he directed and produced the documentary "Chez nous à Beyrouth" (Our home in Beirut).

In 2005, he directed an experimental documentary entitled “Ça sera beau (From Beyrouth With Love)” It will be Beautiful(From Beirut with Love)

In July 2006, at start of the war, he returned to Beirut to film "July Trip".

He directed his fourth film "A Film Far Beyond a God" in Yemen in 2007.

In 2008, Wael found himself homeless for several months and thus nearly ready to return to Yemen to raise crocodiles. But he was forced to put that project on hold. Instead, he was hired to work on films in New York City as DP and actor.

In 2009, Wael abandons dreams of crocodile farming and instead starts his own production company Bird of Prey Productions and he shot his first feature film "Rivieres Souterraines du Banditisme", also directed and produced his fifth short film entitled "l'Histore de la Drogue" (The History of Drugs).
