    Exploring the complex human characters by putting myself in their shoes, helps me better understand our world. Filmmaking reminds me of how connected we are.

    Raised in Nigeria and Pakistan, Bilal is a Physics Olympian turned filmmaker. She just directed her 7th film, EXTINCTION, a dystopian future where the #MuslimBan is taken to its extreme. Next, FORBIDDEN STEPS, a film about Islamophobia and Dance, is scheduled for filming in Fall 2017 in Los Angeles and Chicago. Bilal initiated the Pakistani Oscar committee and is the founder of Pakistan’s first professional screenwriting lab (QALAMBAAZ).
