The screening will be followed by a Q/A session with the director where he will discuss his experience filming in Pakistan, the pitfalls that filmmakers will face, and what he foresees as the future of the industry.

An associate of the London Film School, Assad recently graduated with a Masters in Directing and Cinematography.
