a documentary film
A young Afghan-New Zealand couple make a risky journey to Afghanistan to change 51 lives following an event that changed their own.
Fiftyone is a feature documentary told through the eyes of Bariz Shah and Saba Afrasyabi. 
In remembrance of the 51 people martyred in Christchurch’s two mosques on March 15 2019 they travel to Afghanistan to empower some of Kabul’s most poverty stricken people through 51 micro-business projects.

Using their personal footage filmed over 3 months in Afghanistan, we share in their determination to change lives, and see the dramatic changes in the people they meet. 
Together Bariz and Saba respond to an act of terror by creating hope and uplifting lives.
