Iram Haq’s courageous and provocative semi-autobiographical debut feature I Am Yours is a powerfully honest and moving portrayal of a young woman struggling with love, motherhood and being caught between two cultures. Mina is a 27 year old actress, second generation Pakistani and single mother of 4 year old Felix. She’s separated from her husband whom her family adore, and this is just one in a line of perceived misdemeanours that her parents believe have brought shame upon their family. Burdened by their constant disappointment and desperately lonely, Mina looks for comfort in the wrong places, and places her trust in the wrong people, repeatedly compromising her relationship with her family and her son, all to devastating effects on her state of mind. Featuring Ola Rapace (Crimes of Passion, Skyfall) and Amrita Acharia (Game of Thrones).
