About the filmmaker

Anila Shaheen from Gilgit Baltistan, Pakistan I am currently studying at Asian University for Women in Bangladesh. I belong to a family which was the first to send their daughters to school in the region and had to face so many challenges and opposition from the people. storytelling was a favorite hobby when I was a child which grew to become my passion. When I was seven years old I participated in an oral storytelling competition and got second position in districts and then I wrote a book named "For the Heart their is no Color of Skin" which was published when I was in Grade 10 by "A Book By Me".

I aim to change the stories about women; I want to tell the stories of glory, success, bravery of women.
