Deepen your appreciation of her two successful dramas in our programme – When I Saw You and Wajib (pictured) – by tuning in to this conversation about her work.

His latest documentary, Tell Spring Not to Come This Year, won two awards. He is a regular human rights speaker and educator with Amnesty International and has been teaching filmmaking and cinematography for over 10 years.
