Drama by Karim Ouelhaj
In 2005, Karim Ouelhaj created Okayss film to support the production of his first self-produced feature film: Parabola.
The film was selected at the Venice Days Author’s Day.
The film won the Federico Fellini Award in Tiburon (USA) in 2006.
An Experimental Musical Movie
Inspired by the music of the Belgian rock band Frank Shinobi, Karim Ouelhaj writes and directs a medium-length musical film with actor Pierre Nisse.
Accompanied by his collective of creators and technicians now called “Oakyss Prod” Karim tries to follow in the footsteps of one of these masters of cinema: Alan Parker.
Le Repas du Singe
Second part of the societal triptych started with Parabola, The Monkey Dust is as much a love story as a dramatic thriller. Maryse Dinsard won the award for best performance in Rome for the role of Nadia. The film was also screened at the Brussels LGBT Festival and was noted for having portrayed homosexuality without it being the subject of the film. A way for the author to emphasize the normality of sexual diversity.
Une réalité par seconde
a reality every second
It is because he met Lucky H to make his video clip, that Karim Ouelhaj became interested in his life and his work as a street educator. This is what triggered this film, halfway between fiction and documentary.
the frozen eye
Méliès d’or for this return to short films, a format that we like a lot at Okayss. The Frozen eye has travelled the fantastic festivals of the world and has supported Karim Ouelhaj’s obvious turn towards the genre film.
Tundra was released in 2017 and won the Best Director award upon its Premiere in Great Britain. A year later, after several selections, it will win the award for best short film in Belarus
Tribe in pictures
Tribe in pictures, a short documentary, is a collaborative work tracing both the history of Okayss prod as a creative collective, but also explaining the different trades of cinema.
This is the first film produced by Florence Saâdi.
Le coffret 3 DVD de Karim Ouelhaj
Collector 3-DVD box
Produced with participative fundraising, Karim Ouelhaj’s DVD set has been conceived as a collector’s item. It includes the societal triptych composed of the three feature films: Palabola, Monkey dust and A Reality Every Second and includes numerous bonuses: short fiction and documentary films and lots of video clips
Okayss business company
In 2019, Florence Saâdi and Karim Ouelhaj decide to officially become partners and convert Okayss into a commercial company. It’s a new start with a new structure, new challenges but the values and DNA of the original collective.
Horror and mystical violence
Fourth feature by Karim Ouelhaj and by far his most savage. His sharp examination of societal anguish blends into this genre-adoring film that no horror devotee would dare miss. Carried by the breathtaking performance of lead actor Eline Schumacher and her descent into insanity, MEGALOMANIAC digs deep into the sordid true story of Belgian serial killer, The Butcher of Mons.
