Awarded "Best Screenplay" by the World Association of Arts, Literature and Media
The master of an unprecedented empire leads an army of nations to war, fulfilling prophesy.
Ren A. Hakim would like to consider herself a modern day Scheherezade. A Broadcast Arts graduate from the United States, she describes her upbringing as, "Middle East meets Midwest." While her mother was born and raised in America, her father is from the land once known as Mesopotamia: Iraq. Being connected to a region so deeply rooted in the past sparked her fascination with history and instilled an appreciation for the lessons to be learned from it.
Growing up in multicultural home is something she counts as a blessing. Some may say she has enjoyed the best of both worlds, but her parents gave her the gift of seeing it is, in truth, ONE.
This is a central message of Ren´s ´novelized´ script, Xerxes, which has been awarded the title of "Best Screenplay" by the World Association of Arts, Literature and Media. The tale sheds light on the most feared and revered figure of his time, offering a new view of the emperor -- revealing the man. It is a provocative story that illustrates a past shockingly parallel with the present, but inspires hope that the future is not yet lost...a saga of love, war and, ultimately, the journey to find one´s purpose in life.
