Project Description

East Meets Western is a tale of two cultures seemingly worlds apart and yet with many similarities steeped in tradition, culture and ethics. I* was contracted to produce, direct and write this one-hour TV documentary that showcases the events that occur during the Calgary Stampede and the festivities within the Calgary Ismaili community, which totally embraces and celebrates the “Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth.” It’s a story about volunteerism, commitment and support between two disparate cultures – east and west – together…truly a blending of cultures.
