Shehzad Hameed Ahmad’s new documentary


Shehzad Hameed Ahmad’s new documentary Flight Of The Falcons releases worldwide March 4 on Channel News Asia.

Set in the heart of rural Pakistan, Flight Of The Falcons follows the remarkable journey of one schoolteacher and three of her students in their individual struggles against child marriages, corporal punishment and societal pressures, to achieve a collective dream: empowering women through education. In a country where 25 million children do not make it to school, and where the Taliban have bombed hundreds of girls schools, it is a compelling and deeply human struggle that revolves around Riffat Arif, a 30-year old woman and educator, who is aiming to inspire and empower Pakistani women through her two room school in her tiny town of the Punjab province – home to more half of Pakistan’s out of school children.
