WadiRum Productions is a collaboration of the brothers Roko Belic and Adrian Belic. They made their first film in elementary school with a childhood friend, Chris Nolan [Memento (2001), Insomnia (2002)]. It was there on the dining room wall that the magic flicker of filmmaking first captivated the brothers.

Whether it is documentaries, fiction films, or music videos the passion is the same. The brothers see filmmaking as the age-old art of storytelling updated with motion pictures and sound. It is the organic journey crafted with vision that makes Wadi Rums work powerful, compelling and entertaining.

Their first feature film, the documentary Genghis Blues, won the 1999 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award. It went on to win over 20 awards around the world and was nominated for an Academy Award in 2000.

Current films in production will take audiences from the battlefields of Afghanistan to the spiritual realm of the Himalayas to the heart of Americas urban youth culture.

Wadi Rum continues shooting, editing, and working with other producers in their quest to tell stories with a global perspective about the soul of humanity.
