Ibrahim reflects on a year of challenge and uncertainty.
I’m back! My first blog post of 2016! Let’s do the Sturridge… Wait… what? Oh yes… I haven’t blogged all year. Oops. Sorry everyone. My ONLY blog post of 2016. Technically that isn’t true though, I did write one blog post this year. It just wasn’t published on my website. More on that later… I’ve got to say, […]
Here we go again. Another annual review. My seventh actually. A great opportunity to reflect on a rollercoaster twelve months. As rollercoaster rides come, this has been quite a thrilling one.

It has been shortlisted alongside three other entries under the Freefall category. The Limelight Film Awards is an annual short film competition. It is a […]
Wednesday 11th February 2015. I was at the Hackney Empire in London to attend the UK premiere of American Sharia, a Muslim comedy film by director, writer, comedian and actor Omar Regan. Talk about being multi-talented! I arrived early and was one of the first people in the queue by the front door. As time passed, the line grew larger and […]
