After an invigorating Kickstarter Campaign – which amazed me for the generosity and groundswell of support we garnered – we completed the shoot of my latest short film Outside (now called BUBBLES) last month. I am currently working with Editor Yann Heckmann to cut the film and am really excited about getting it out into the world as soon as possible. Here’s a still from the shoot. The movie is about a little girl (played by newcomer Yasmeen Siddiqui) witnessing a horrible act of domestic violence.

I am a Pakistani woman and filmmaker who grew up in London. I write and direct stories, both documentary and fiction, about the impact of violence on our lives; I am moved to understand characters and places that witness and survive violation and betrayal. I go against the grain of stories about a “clash of civilisations”, and explore our world as I see it: full of grey areas and nuance. I also blog and write about cultural difference and shopping (!).
