Fuzzy Legs

Directed by Amber Eswani
Narrative Short
USA | 12 min | 2018

Amina, a Pakistani-American girl, starts her first day of middle school in the suburbs of Chicago. She quickly finds out, it’s not all what it’s cracked up to be and having hairy legs doesn’t help.

Eswani’s mission is to promote and inspire more women and people of color to tell their stories, especially to those in her own South Asian and Muslim community- to promote diversity, peace, love and more understanding in the world
