Screening of ‘The Mermaid of Churna Island”. by Nameera Ahmed
at the British Council, Karachi,  May 6, 2017

I was invited to screen my film “The Mermaid of Churna Island” (2014) at the British Council, Karachi. The film is the story of Rosheen Khan, Pakistan’s first and only female scuba diving instructor, and highlights the struggles of a woman of courage who dares to live her dream.

We were lucky to have Rosheen with us in Karachi and join us in the post-screening and Q&A session, along with Nameera, and Aziz Sohail of the British Council.
