‘I am Nasrine’ is a teen drama soon to be released by the company Bridge + Tunnel Productions, directed by Tina Gharavi.
It’s the story of an Iranian teenager who flees Iran together with her brother, Ali, and seeks asylum in the UK. It’s a story that tries to humanize the drama of migration, wihtout limiting it to the political debate.
Tina, an award-winning film-maker, has herself been a refugee. She left Iran when she was only 6. She talked to me about the reasons behind ‘I am Nasrine’ and the situation of refugees in the UK nowadays.
