Asri Bendacha is a French-Algerian, award-winning documentary filmmaker and Bitcoin enthusiast since 2016.


Asri began his career as a music video director and music journalist in France, collaborating with some of the country's most famous hip hop artists.


In 2017, after moving to Dubai, he produced and directed his first documentary film, "Follow Me," which examined the phenomenon of social media influencers. The film was well received and was part of the official selection of the NYC Independent Film Festival.


Asri signed an exclusive three-year distribution deal with Netflix, and the film was released on the platform on November 16th, 2018.


Being a lifelong hip hop fan, Asri delved into the evolution of the hip hop industry in the digital age and produced and directed his second film, "The Pursuit of Greatness," which featured Jon Rise, a young and talented but unknown rapper from Florida with the dream of becoming the next hip hop sensation.


The film was part of the official selection of the Hip Hop Film Festival NYC 2020, supported by Ice Cube, where it won "Best Feature Documentary."


Today, Asri Bendacha has taken on the challenge of producing and directing a documentary series about Bitcoin, "SCAN ME," with a radically different approach than what has been done in the crypto world before.
