The Magicians of Halli Road began in 2011 when I met Safia on Halli Road. It is now a project that involves making paintings, an animated film, and a documentary film. The documentary film follows the life of Safia and her family of eight people as they live on the pavement of Halli Road in Gulberg in the city of Lahore, Pakistan. The film has been documenting their life over the course of several years since 2011. The film is being made collaboratively with the family of Safia, Amanat and their six children, film maker Arsal Shafa and artist and documentary film maker Michal Glikson.
