I will be producing a 15-min short movie, "No Ordinary Life", to premiere at the 2020 Bradford Literature Festival. Based on real events, it tells the story of one family's journey (mine!) to overcome racism and hostility through the experience of owning a corner-shop. It is a timely movie which shows how different communities within Bradford attempted to integrate. Syima Aslam, festival director will executive produce alongside AA Dhand and Rajeev Dhand who continues to support the festival. RTS award-winning director, Tim Goodill directs alongside a formidable creative team.
