4.30pm A Letter to the President (Roya Sadat, Afghanistan, 2017) - the first feature film to be directed by a woman in Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban and provides a powerful and fascinating depiction of life in a society that remains largely unknown to the outside world. Plus short The Streets are Ours: Two Lives Cross in Karachi (Michelle Fiordaliso, Pakistan/US, 2016) - Sabeen Mahmud, founder of the cultural space T2F (The Second Floor) in Karachi, invited Pakistani-Canadian actor, director and producer Fawzia Mirza to perform her one-woman play at T2F.

7pm Fake (Tatsuya Mori, Japan, 2016) - esteemed documentary-maker Tatsuya Mori gets behind the media mirage surrounding the publically-disgraced deaf composer Mamoru Samuragochi, the subject of a massive scandal in 2014 when a former associate claimed that the “Beethoven of Japan” was neither the writer of his compositions nor indeed actually deaf.
