Sarah Tareen

Filmmaker/Martial Artist

Challenging the Pakistani woman stereotype, Sarah has trained in mixed martial arts for two years and aims to raise awareness on topics of women and children’s rights through film and sports activism.

Being a pioneer female filmmaker in Pakistan to successfully complete and showcase her film in cinemas, she has invested a decade of hard work in the film and documentary sector working with international broadcasters. Currently, she is working on a feature documentary with UpNorth Film on the children of the slums in Lahore, and how a martial arts gym is getting them off the streets and away from the clutches of fundamentalism.
