This is the online home of L.A.-based writer and hip-hop artist Nizar Wattad (a.k.a. Ragtop).
I’ve written several feature-length screenplays, including the first Arabic-language film for Walt Disney Pictures. My work was selected for the 2010 Dubai Film Connection and the 2008 RAWI / Sundance Lab, and I was a finalist for the 2008 Sundance Screenwriter’s Lab and the 2006 ABC/Disney Writer’s Fellowship. I also exec-produced the first Arab-American hip-hop compilation, and have performed on stages and delivered academic lectures & workshops worldwide.
