Colorlines: ”Add the name Noor Inayat Khan to the honor roll of women who fought against Nazi Germany. A new docudrama, “Enemy of the Reich: The Noor Inayat Khan Story,” dramatizes the real-life story of Khan, a young Muslim of Indian and American heritage who was the first female radio operator sent by the British into Nazi-occupied France. Khan’s decision to join the war effort is all the more intriguing given that she was raised in a pacifist Sufi household.

Later captured and executed at Dachau, Khan was posthumously awarded the George Cross—the UK’s equivalent of the U.S. Medal of Freedom.”

I am so excited to hear her that her story is being brought to life for a wider audience! 

Find the premiere nearest you!

it felt like i knew you…, 2012 - ongoing
I ride the NYC subway trains, usually in the evening when the seats are full. I focus on the shape of the space between the person sitting next to me and myself. I attempt to mentally and emotionally re-sculpt that space. In my mind, I reshape it- from the stiff and guarded space between strangers to the soft and yielding space between friends. I direct all my energy to this space between us. When the space palpably changes, and I completely feel like the stranger sitting next to me is my friend, I rest my head on that person’s shoulder…
