PICTURE LOCKED! A new, experimental, Pakistani, short film co- directed by the amazing Karachi-based @hermajestysuranus and I - written by me, shot by her, edited by @felixjpineiro — now in post at @periscopepostandaudio Les by Kaitlyn - thankful to so many folks who took this experimental, guerilla, random idea of mine and facilitated its reality and then contributed to its shape. CAST: the amazing @kulsoomaftab & @fawadkhan204 - and a host of other folks - Thanks @thatryanlogan 4 some magical ideas in the final stages & @sadiauqaili 4 the calligraphy (I may need one more) and now to John & Ryan at Periscope for color & Sound! Let’s see where we premiere this weird little baby!! #shortfilm #breakyourmold #saya #shadow #jinn #stories #karachi #mohattapalace #experimentalfilm #film #filmfestivals #browngirl #sayaseries #pakistan

Back to life, back to hosting The Moth storytelling and an always sold out crowd. New producer welcome to JOYCE KIM! Also - one of my favorite things about stories and storytelling is what sparks inside us, the audience, when a story is shared. This Monday night the theme was AWARDS. I graduated high school from a place in Wabash, Indiana - I got two main awards - MOST LIKELY TO BE ON THE COVER OF TIME MAGAZINE and then MOST LIKELY TO LIVE IN A WHITE VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER — I’m both the person they thought would succeed but they were simultaneously terrified of. #yingyang #stories #awards #storytelling #themoth #vocalo #publicradio #browngirl #memories #mostlikely pic credit @kylehamman

This little guy was bigger than my head. It’s a massive artichoke from the @djerassiprogram garden. So it grew outside the house I lived in for a month at my writing residency in the #santacruz mountains. I had nothing to do with tending to it but it was so beautiful and perfect, almost like a plastic prop. This is my new favorite bouquet. #nofilter #latergram #residency #writing #djerassi #3arts #browngirl

TODAY 1pm catch me on @windycitylive on @abc7chicago i’m guest hosting, talking about life, pop culture & politics - all the awesome and gross things going on these days. Where’s my mountain life @djerassi & @3arts ??? #chicago #artistslife #browngirl #daytime #daytimetv #talkshow #daytimetalkshow #hosting #tuesday

An incredible film and an incredible filmmaker @bootsriley with some of his cast pre screening of #SorrytoBotherYou at @sffilm at the @castrotheatre - i cannot believe that I share space as a #RaininFellow - this movie is brilliant and amazing and defies the rules as stories should. Stories should be ours. To tell as we need or want or please. CANNOT WAIT to hear him speak tomorrow. #sanfrancisco #oakland #sffilm #film #art #sffilmfestival2018

Today is the last day of my residency at the most amazing @djerassiprogram in the #santacruz mountains. I am moved and humbled and full of gratitude. I am aware of my strength, the strength of space and time, the importance to breathe and the power of land. I am sad to leave but full of transition. I know I am changed and empowered. I saw my heart and my abilities, in stillness. Yes, I am an extrovert whose finding her introverted power and there’s nothing more satisfying. I’m grateful to every human who is part of this path and these revelations. You know who you are. You know who you are. You know who you are. Thank you @3artschicago for my fun jail for my space and for seeing me in a light that I continue to carry with me. #artist #artistslife #writing #writerslife #changethenarrative #poc #qpoc #muslim #pakistani #queer #breathing #gratitude

Just some #SXSW2018 pics from just one part of my #sxsw experience - I had the great joy of moderating the VIDA panel a new #Latinx show by @tanyasaracho on @Starz - such an amazing conversation about #intersectionality #relatabity #browness #queerness #humanness and #authenticity - the entire cast is amazing in the show and real life. Got my nails done at the @starz sensory house on #raineystreet too! Congrats on their #audienceaward win!!

Channeling this piece of art made by @thatryanlogan and I in 2012. Went from this short film to a one woman play dramaturged with Brian Golden and developed at @catharsisproductions and now a screenplay that @terriesamundra and I are writing with a @sffilm fellowship. Channeling this version of me and my #Goddess and My Mother and the Goddess that is #SharmilaTagore as I work on a draft of the play while at the amazing @djerassiprogram month long writing residency as their @3artschicago artist. #brownwomen #artivism #changethenarrative #bollywood #novascotia #muslim #queer #human #justbe #girlingirldrag #drag #futureisfemale

You know the friend who reads your frantic late night email? Or is always there to share an eye roll when a dude mansplains you in a meeting ? Live from the @tunein stage at #SXSW, @bridgetmarieindc sat down with @darian , @thefawz , and @blairimani to celebrate ladyfriends, both IRL and onscreen! 👯 #sxsw2018 #sxsw #podcast #bffs #women #muslimwomen

This is a #latergram from #berlin and a party at the #Mexican Embassy featuring art by this amazing woman whose name I don’t remember —- such beautiful pieces playing with light and shadows and this was obviously one of my favorites. I brought this #CinemaMexico cup home with me but sadly not the #mezcal that was in it. Looking forward to making something in #Mexico with @jackcnewell soon. #berlinale @berlinale #filmfestival #films #filmmakers
