Until she was 19, Nadia Zouaoui lived in the Kabylia region of Algeria where she studied Arab literature. She has been living in Montreal since 1989 and has undertaken studies in communication arts as well as French and English literature. Since 1994, she has been involved in various facets of public affairs radio broadcasting. She was a researcher for CBC Radio’s Day Break, Info 690’s Internet coverage of the war in Iraq, and the Gilles Proulx show on CKAC.

Since 1999, she has been working as a freelance journalist for various programs on CBC radio, Radio-Canada, and Info 690, preparing reports for the program Commentaries, and contributing to Radio Canada’s Dimanche Magazine program. In 2005, her project on the radical changes in Morocco’s family code earned her the Bourse NORD-SUD. The result was a report for Dimanche Magazine entitled « Peut-on marier Islam et droits de femmes? » (Are Islam and women’s rights compatible?) She occasionally writes articles dealing with the Arab world for La Presse and Journal Alpha.

Nadia Zouaoui is currently a narrator, researcher and translator at Galafilm. She recently made her filmmaking début as co-director of Nadia’s Journey. In addition to conceiving the idea for the film, she wrote the script, took charge of the research and carried out the interviews, translation and narration.

She is presently working on a second documentary concerning the culture shock sometimes experienced by Montrealers of Arab origin.
