Hidden Heart is the work of filmmaker Zara Afzal and Producer Christopher Hird (Battle for Barking, Inside the Saudi Kingdom, The End of the Line).
Hidden Heart follows the stories of three second generation British women who find love outside their faith.
The film delves intimately into their struggle to reconcile modernity with tradition; their internal conflicts and fear of ostracism and sheds light on the hidden tensions in our modern society between integration and tradition and the people who are at the heart of it.
The film explores a new vision of cultural identity, defying the notion of a so-called ‘clash of cultures’ and challenging barriers to understanding between different communities. Although focussing on the lives of British men and women, the film will strike a chord with any and all of those around the world living in a tight-knit community, under pressure to maintain their identity.
