Mirzaei Films


Gulistan Mirzaei and Elissa Sylvia Mirzaei are a husband-and- wife filmmaking team. They founded Mirzaei Films to be an indigenous window into Afghanistan, a country that is usually represented from an outsider’s perspective. They have co-directed three films for Al Jazeera's flagship documentary strand, Witness: , STRANDED IN KABUL, FAREWELL KABUL, and FOR SARDAR. They have worked on films for the BBC, Discovery and PBS and are currently in production on their first feature documentary, Laila at the Bridge.
