Surayia has spoken many times about creating and how important it was to her.

Len and I had a great afternoon working to complete the fundraising trailer for the documentary.  It’s always exciting to see the images and music come together to tell a story.

We really enjoy editing with Rita Meher.  Rita is a founder and executive director of  Tasveer, “a Northwest not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting independent South Asian cinema.”  She organized a screening of a trailer for the film at “Aaina,” which I blogged about on March 20.  She works for SCAN TV, Seattle’s public access station, and is also, like Surayia, a wife and mother.

I’m looking  forward to posting a trailer on the website soon.
