WIFTV 25th Anniversary Retrospective presents encore screening of Brishkay Ahmed’s daring doc Story of Burqa

Brishkay and I have been loosely in contact with each other since then and I was very happy to see her film will get an encore screening at WIFTV’s 15th anniversary retrospective on January 18, 2015. I hope to see some of you there. Here’s my conversation with Brishkay on behalf of Women in Film.
