Last year, actor Ali Fazal was roped in to play one of the leads alongside Gerard Butler in the action film Kandahar, which is set to release in 2023. Now, Ali has signed his next international project titled Afghan Dreamers. The film is being directed by two-time Academy Award-winning director, Bill Guttentag.

Bill is known for his Oscar-winning short documentaries, You Don’t Have to Die and Twin Towers. He has directed several documentaries including 2009’s Soundtrack for a Revolution.

The shoot for Afghan Dreamers recently began in Morocco and it will be a 50 days schedule. The majority of the film is shot across Morocco and Budapest. 

The film is based on the program 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 the heavily patriarchal society from which they hail.
