What more could you expect from someone who believes that “genuine curiosity is the antidote to fear?”  Iram’s films have addressed issues like feudalism, youth movements, cultural stigma, generational ties, and poverty. The interdisciplinary nature of her work has received praise for tackling these complex issues while incorporating an exciting degree of mystery and thrill.Her latest film is " I’ll Meet You There,” a story that follows the father-daughter journey of Majeed, a Chicago policeman, and Dua, his teenage ballerina daughter as he goes undercover in a mosque for a special FBI assignment.
