Suman Hanif’s Tell Me About It was a fitting end to our The Future Is Northern strand—a true indie film that tells an original story of identity, diversity and embracing differences. Shot partly in Bradford, the film tells the story of rebellious British Pakistani teenagers Amara and Halima, who plan a secret escape from Bradford to London, away from their dominating parents. But everything goes horribly wrong when Amara is suddenly kidnapped in a case of mistaken identity.
Following the film’s first screen outing in our Pictureville cinema, Suman, lead actors Ariya Larker and Asad Shan, and Shanaz Gulzar, Creative Director of Bradford City of Culture, joined us to discuss the film and their experiences working in the film industry.
