Len and I are really excited about being able to take part in the “Aaina” festival which will be held in Seattle March 25 – 27. The very talented South Asian women involved are working in a variety of media: drama, film, photography, painting, music.
The editor we have been working with on a short trailer for the film, Rita Meher, is the executive director of Aaina and invited us to join with the other artists for an opening reception and conversation March 25. If you are in the Seattle area, join us there as we talk about the film project and show our first fundraising trailer for Threads.
An interesting coincidence: “aaina” means “mirror” in Urdu and Surayia’s organization was called “Arshi,” which is “mirror” in Bangla.
