Monday morning’s got me moving at about the same pace as this little guy 🐌
Missed @afghancycles at @siffnews last month? Or maybe just want to see it again?? After getting a Jury Special Mention, we have another screening tomorrow night as part of the Best of Fest line up of films. Head over to the SIFF box office at www.siff.net. Hope to see you there!!
The past 6 weeks on the road with @afghancycles has been INCREDIBLE and I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. But I am feeling pretty excited to get back home and catch my breath with these pretty ladies for a beat or two ❤️
@afghancycles took home its first piece of hardware last night - we won BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE at the @brooklynfilmfestival !!!! I’m still on a high, and couldn’t be prouder to share this with the entire team that made it all happen. Thank you so much to BFF for such a special experience these past few days, and another huge thanks to all our panel members that made Friday’s screening unforgettable and impactful!
While I am very proud to receive the award, this is for the brave women in Afghanistan who trusted me with their story and opened up to me. @frozan_rasooli, @masomah.alizada, @zahra.naarin, @nahidbikaraan, @zakiamohammadi, @zahraalizada1, @zhala_sarmast, @nazifa_hassani, Mariam, Tahira, and everyone else - THANK YOU! I feel so lucky to be able to share your story and inspire others. I miss you all, and love you dearly! ❤️
5 film festivals in 6 weeks’ got us feeling a little 🤪
Yep, that’s the amazing @fereshtamusic behind Jenny wondering what the hell she got herself into when we asked her to take a photo with us 😆
I’m so excited for the screening + panel tonight at the @brooklynfilmfestival. After the film, I’ll be joined by @kalalafortunereed of @girlsonbikess, @lydiamazin of @bicyclehabitat, and @fatimarahmati of @womenforafghanwomen to discuss all things cycling and Afghanistan. If you’re in #Brooklyn, come join us at @windmillstudiosnyc at 6:30. Cheers!
Vacation is hard to come by these days, but last week we squeezed in a little time off between film festivals. Felt so good to play in the mountains with @bailey_k! But vacation is over now, time for emails.
Oh hey Eastern Sierras! I like you!
The @afghancycles crew does @mountainfilm - our first screening is tomorrow, 12pm at the Nugget Theater. Hope to see you there!! #mfilm18
@siffnews is kicking off tonight - have you gotten your tickets for @afghancycles yet??
Me ‘n my gurl
@mountainfilm is where things all started for me in terms of my work today. That was about 7 years ago, and I couldn't be more proud to announce that I've got two films in the festival this year - @afghancycles and @themirnavator. Fun fact: @jennygnichols worked with me on BOTH of these films because she's just cool like that. So excited to bring both of these films down to Telluride in a couple weeks and share them with the community that has nurtured and supported my work all these years. THANK YOU!!
The most amazing thing happened at our screening yesterday at the @agakhanmuseum. During the Q&A, a woman came up to the microphone to say that she grew up in Afghanistan and was never able to ride a bike there, but she always dreamed of being able to experience that freedom and independence. As soon as she moved to Canada, she learned to ride a bicycle. At that point, I was already tearing up, then she added that she was there with her cycling club made up of other local Afghan women !!! It was so amazing!! “We are the dreamers,” she said. My heart will forever remember the moment, it was so special and I am grateful they came to see the film.
Thank you @hotdocsfest for all you have given to me and this film - this was the perfect way to end such a special premiere experience! #hotdocs25
