Mim Shaikh: Finding Dad


Mim Shaikh is a spoken-word artist, BBC radio broadcaster & YouTube star. But Mim’s life is missing one thing. In this affecting and revelatory one hour film, Mim is going on a deeply personal journey to track down his father for the first time. We follow Mim from his home in London as he sets out to piece together the jigsaw of his identity. Armed with just a name, he’s determined to track down the man who walked out of his life 26 years ago, never to be heard of again. He knows that his dad’s family comes from Pakistan and he’s ready to travel there for very first time. Will he find his dad’s relatives? Will they talk him? And will they help him on his search? It’s not just a significant story for Mim. This is a meeting agonised over by young people worldwide.
