Shoot for Afghan Dreamers recently began in Morocco and will be a 50 days schedule, with the majority of the film being shot across Morocco and Budapest. The film is the true story about the program that was started by Afghan tech entrepreneur, Roya Mahboob in 2017 as a way to help young women develop their skills in the field of science and technology, despite a heavily patriarchal society in the country they hail from. The film throws light on the chaotic, sometimes dangerous backdrop of the country’s politics. The story tells the tale of the team of the Afghan girls who traveled across the world and participated in competitions, garnered global media attention and even met leading politicians from across the globe. The role of Roya will be essayed by The Bold Type famed Nikohl Boosheri.
