I directed and shot this short film about Habiba in Northern Pakistan. She travels into the traditional rural villages outside of Lahore and encourages women to meet up together to learn health and beauty tips, (and buy Unilever products). I travelled to Pakistan on my own as the producer's visa didn't arrive in time. Luckily for me, Habiba practically produced her own film and I had a fantastic time!
