My passion for film was fuelled by my upbringing. I was born in Afghanistan and raised in diaspora. As a refugee I was never allowed to attend school. My education consisted of all the books we had at home. Those books were mainly classic novels and poetries. Chekov, Rumi, Dostoyevsky where my teachers. These artists inspired me and shaped the way I view the world. They sparked my interest of writing at the tender age of nine and I have been writing and making films ever since.
Not being able to be a part of a society made me question a lot about my identity and the discrimination it would face. My films examine these human behaviours by digging deep into a specific question. I work in the capacities of a director, writer, editor and cinematographer.
