Elaha, Londoner #284


This film was made by Sara Noori, an Afghan-Canadian and a Deptford resident. Like Elaha, Noori is hoping to explore the issue of Afghans in the Diaspora, to inspire not only young Afghans but also young people around the world and to present a different picture of ordinary Afghans, contrary to what is currently shown on mainstream media. In making the film Noori was supported by documentary filmmaker and social entrepreneur Rachel Wang of Chocolate Films, the video production company behind 1000 Londoners. Noori and Wang met through a mentorship programme in collaboration with the Guild of Entrepreneurs and the University of Westminster, where Sara Noori is currently studying for her MA on the Digital and Interactive Storytelling LAB MA course.
