LevelK takes on international sales for TIFF-bound ‘The Queen Of My Dreams’ (exclusive)
LevelK has boarded international sales for the Canadian/Pakistani dramedy The Queen Of My Dreams, which will have its world premiere in Toronto’s Discovery section. Signature Move’s Fawzia Mirza writes and directs.
Azra, a Pakistani woman living in Toronto, is worlds apart from her conservative Muslim mother. When her father suddenly dies on a trip home to Pakistan, Azra finds herself on a Bollywood-inspired journey through memories, both real and imagined, from her mother’s youth in Karachi to her own coming-of-age in rural Canada.
Amrit Kaur from HBO Max’s The Sex Lives Of College Girls plays Azra as well as Azra’s mother in her younger years. Other cast includes Nimra Bucha (Ms. Marvel) and Hamza Haq (With Love And A Major Organ). Producers are Jason Levangie (Kids Vs. Aliens) and Marc Tetreault (Suck It Up) for Halifax-based Shut Up & Colour Pictures, and Andria Wilson Mirza for Baby Daal Productions. read the full exclusive here.
