The film features Armeena alongside Mert Kilic and Turkish television personality. Ayhan Isik. “Snapshot is a story relatable to today’s time, and depicts the importance of friendships that can truly be life’s greatest blessing,” shared Armeena, adding that she plays the role of a Pakistani-Canadian girl, grounded in Turkey due to the pandemic and consequential lockdown.
Sharaz Ali also shared the poster on social media revealing it was shot in Istanbul. “Poster drop of my new short film SnapShot which was shot in Istanbul and now doing the festival rounds.”
“The story is set in the real pandemic world we now live in. It’s a short story with a big heart and that’s exactly what each and every person gave to get this film over the finish line. With lockdowns, curfews and everything else covid related- this was one of the hardest shoots to complete and one I couldn’t have done without everyone involved, each giving it there all… and the results speak for themselves.”
Armeena and Sharaz have previously worked together in two films, Writhe and The Stranger Within Me. Both made it to Cannes Film Festival together in 2013 and 2014.
