The Queen of My Dreams

Milwaukee Film Festival

Azra is worlds apart from her conservative Muslim mother. When her father suddenly dies on a trip home to Pakistan, Azra finds herself on a Bollywood-inspired journey through memories, both real and imagined, from her mother’s youth in Karachi to her own coming-of-age in rural Canada. From MFF alum Fawzia Mirza (AUNTIE, NOOR AND LAYLA), THE QUEEN OF MY DREAMS is a touching dramedy exploring intergenerational connections between mothers and daughters, East and West, home and away.

- Following the screenings there will be a Q&A with Fawzia Mirza (director, writer), Andria Wilson Mirza (producer)
