In 2005 Nausheen plunged headfirst into the world of filmmaking when she went to Northern Pakistan two weeks after the region was devastated by an earthquake to shoot a documentary. The film entitled, “The Ground Beneath Their Feet” (GBTF), took her nine long years to make which is a testament to her love of storytelling, and her stubbornness to leave no task unfinished once it’s begun.
While working on GBTF Nausheen pursued her Masters of Fine Arts in Cinematography from the American Film Institute. Since then she’s lensed a variety of projects. The documentary feature, “Lunch” earned first place at the Los Angeles Press Club Awards. While her first narrative feature “Josh” went on to play theatrically all over the US, UK and Pakistan. Most recently she worked with with Oscar winning director Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy (“Saving Face”) on a documentary in Haiti about female UN Peacekeepers.
Nausheen's eclectic interests range from archery, to fine art, to comic books, to urban exploration, and of course the world around her. She has such an immense wanderlust, it is impossible for her to travel light because she carries at least five cameras around at all times. Nausheen feels compelled to capture the stories in every face she meets. She is based in Los Angeles and Karachi.
