In Focus: Kylo Ren, Son of Darkness

For my first Character Study, I have chosen the character of Kylo Ren, from the Star Wars sequel trilogy. With the clock to the final film already counting down – I wanted to lay out a theory and an analysis about Darth Vader’s grandson, one that states that he, and not Rey, could be essentially the sequel trilogy’s true protagonist – and if you watch the sequel trilogy with that perspective – it can actually give you a much better viewing experience.

Having an actor for a father and a novel lover for a mother, you can say that storytelling has always been a big part of my life. As a Lebanese man who lived half of his life in the US, I believe that we all deserve a chance to tell our story, and have strived to ensure that my voice is heard via my award winning short films.

In 2018, I created SCRIPT2SCREEN in order to give young filmmakers a platform to share their concerns, struggles, celebrations, and dreams. As the show started to grow, I felt the need to expand SCRIPT2SCREEN and make it more of a critical yet nontoxic conversation about Film and Television but I couldn't do it alone so I brought on my best friend, brother, and now co-pilot HAD SOLO.

Since then, SCRIPT2SCREEN has grown a humble fanbase that we labeled our SCREENERS, and had the opportunity to be ambassadors at the MIDDLE EAST FILM & COMIC CON two years in a row, where I moderated two CELEBRITY PANELS, and even had HAD join me on stage a few times for some SCRIPT2SCREEN LIVE!
