“The Asifa Bano Story” (EXCLUSIVE) Interview with Mina JafriMalik

-Who is Mina JafriMalik?

I am a former model and actor who decided to take a turn on the other side of the camera in order to tell stories that truly matter. I come from a family of journalists, and as such, it is my calling.

-What inspired you to become a Filmmaker?

There is a great need to share the harsh realities of the world and its dangers so that we can work to create a better, safer world for future generations. Film and raising awareness is one of the chief ways we can achieve this.

-Do you think the cinema can bring a change in the society?

Absolutely. Media consumption is a huge part of our everyday life. If we read about tragedies and horrors happening both in our country and abroad, we can take the requisite steps to stop them from happening again.

What would you change in the world?

I would make it so that war and all of its consequences did not exist. I would also make sure everyone exercised clean, sustainable options when it comes to energy and free higher education and healthcare for all.

-Where do you see the film industry going in the next 100 years?

Hopefully we will see more storytellers bringing important issues and causes to the table, making this world a better and more well-informed place.
