Written by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Simon Beaufoy (The Full Monty, Among Giants) and starring Archie Panjabi (TV's Sea Of Souls, Bend It Like Beckham, East Is East), director Kenneth Glenaan's award-winning YASMIN is a compelling and topical drama set amongst a Muslim community in the North of England before and after the events of 9/11.
Yasmin is a spirited woman whose life has become a precarious balancing act as she attempts both to please her traditional Pakistani family and enjoy the freedoms of Western life. Having rebelled against her family as a teenager, Yasmin yields to the demands of her widowed father and agrees to marry a cousin 'from home'. The omens are not good when the goat-herder from a Pakistani village meets the vivacious, Westernised Yasmin. After the shocking events of 9/11, Yasmin's life begins to change; her innate sense of confidence starts to evaporate and she becomes increasingly ostracised at work. Yasmin is only jolted out of her crisis of identity when she witnesses a brutal internment of her husband under the draconian rules of the Anti-terrorism Act. The injustice of this event forces Yasmin to re-evaluate her faith, her culture and her relationships. The scene is set for a compelling and topical personal drama of what it means to be Asian, Muslim and British in the 21st century.
