My name is Mahieddine BENABED (known as Mahi BENA), I was born on November 09, 1974 in Oran, Algeria. I did all my studies and my life in Algeria until the famous November 12, 2001 and where I set foot for the first time in France. In Algeria, thanks to the film club, cinema became more than a passion for me. When I arrived in France, I took screenwriting classes in a workshop led by David Barouk at Method Acting. Since then I have written several short films, feature films and series. The latest one is called "Probation", a radio series produced by France Culture and will be broadcasted next October.
