Happy Things in Sorrow Times

About This Project

Award winning director Mohammed Naqvi’s short film Happy Things In Sorrow Times, inspired by best-selling author Tehmina Durrani’s book of the same name. Set against the backdrop of the ongoing war, “Happy Things in Sorrow Times” is a delicately wrought tale—told from the hopeful heart of an Afghan child—of love, hardship, separation, loss and fear.
