Community Screening:
Yasmeen’s Element

Join us for a special sneak-peek preview of Yasmeen’s Element, a new film by critically acclaimed Pakistani-American director Amman Abbasi.

Shot in the remote Hunza region of northern Pakistan, the film follows a young Pakistani schoolgirl named Yasmeen after she loses her homework – an element from the periodic table. She embarks on a day-long quest to find her professor’s house. As she weaves through the neighbouring towns and villages, she is helped and sometimes hindered by those she encounters – a parable for what women’s education can be in an unstable place.

Yasmeen’s Element
Directed by Amman Abbasi
2024, United States, Pakistan, and Portugal, 76 minutes, not rated
Presented in Urdu with English subtitles.

This free community screening is presented in partnership with Sound of Afghanistan and will feature a community panel discussion and performance from Sound of Afghanistan following the films screening.

Special thanks to The 30 Birds Foundation for their sponsorship with this community screening:

The 30 Birds Foundation is a beacon of hope for Afghan girls and their families seeking refuge from the Taliban. After evacuating a school’s founder and his family, a team of determined citizens turned their attention to the students – primarily Afghan girls – who were under threat from the Taliban.
