synopsis
Small Delights is a short fiction film that centers on teenage Aziza, who is in the middle of figuring herself out - but one thing she does know, is that she loves music. Through listening to and making music, Aziza, a South Asian Muslim teenager from NYC, is attempting to find out where she fits in.

director
Hena Ashraf's roots are from the subcontinent, and she spent her early years in the U.K. before immigrating to America. She concentrated in Film and Video Studies at the University of Michigan and graduated in 2008, and has been based in NYC since. Hena's films feature characters whose multiple identities characterize them as outsiders and who struggle to find a place to fit in. These themes have been developed from her own personal experiences of being a young Muslim woman growing up in the U.K. and America. Small Delights is Hena's second short fiction film that features young Muslims struggling with identity and belonging.
