1250 Broadway, 27th Floor New York, NY 10001


FIND THE LIGHT, written and directed by Abdullah Khan, had its world premiere at Manchester Film Festival, ( @maniffofficial), on March 16, 2022.
This special film stars GEORGE MACKAY, CRAIG MCGINLAY, RHYS STONE, SEEMA BOWRI, AMERJIT DEU, and introduces, (then) 16-year-old, JAYSOL DOL.
The story follows a victimized boy who decides to confront his inner demons by drowning himself, and during the process finds purpose and meaning.
In an interview which played at the opening of the festivities, Abdullah and George chat with Festival Director, Neil Jeram-Croft, about the project. (The short’s underlying inspiration and origins are quite enlightening.)
Of course, a congratulatory shout-out to the entire cast and crew is most certainly in order. (Their IG tags follow.)
