Inside Out 


2020, Digital & 16mm film


Inside Out is a short film combining footage of everyday British-Pakistani culture with scenes filmed in London and archival material. Along with a poetic monologue performed against an original score by musician Nadia Tehran, the film reflects on the complexity and alienation of navigating a cross-cultural existence in a homogeneous Western society — the cycle of disconnect with environment and homecoming to self through honest embodiment.

Inside Out premiered online at 4:3 Boiler Room in March 2021.
