Najeeb Mirza, Director
Najeeb Mirza’s film career was inspired by the rich history,
culture and natural beauty of Central Asia. Originally posted to
the region as a Canadian diplomat, the fascinating stories he
came across in his travels in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan,
Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan motivated him to begin
documenting the region to share with the West. Since 2004
Mirza has produced and directed four documentary films set in
the region: Buzkashi! (2012); The Sweetest Embrace: Return to
Afghanistan (2008);
