Frame by Frame Screening Tomorrow

We're delighted to be holding a viewing tomorrow of Frame by Frame, a wonderful documentry about the power of photojournalism in Afghanistan.  One of our very own alum, Baktash Ahadi was an associate producer and translator on the film.  

Born in Kabul in 1981, Baktash and his family had to flee during the Soviet Invasion in 1984. After spending over a year and half in Pakistan between refugee camps and makeshift homes, his family was given asylum in the United States and started their new life in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Baktash started his career as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Mozambique. He then went into management consulting with Booz Allen Hamilton before serving as a military translator in Afghanistan for three years. His experience not only brought him closer to his roots and but also instilled a sense of responsibility to educate others on the realities on the ground in Afghanistan. Baktash joined FRAME BY FRAME as an ambassador for that same reason — to shed light on the country's complexities through human stories.  

Baktash will have a Q&A at the end of the screening tomorrow, we hope to see you there!
