London director’s short film makes it to the Oscar shortlist 2024
London director and actor Elham Ehsas’s short film ‘Yellow’ has been Oscar shortlisted and Bafta long-listed.
Elham, who also stars in the short film, was born in Afghanistan but left the country as a child.
He says he wants his short film to bring attention back to the women and girls of Afghanistan, which fell back under Taliban rule in 2021.
