His work encompasses documentary and narrative film, video installation and interactive storytelling and has been broadcast and featured at festivals around the world. His recent interactive project, “Kabul Portraits”, exploring the lives of Afghan storytellers, can be viewed online at http://kabulportraits.nfb.ca.
