Polite Society – Operation Marriage leads Nida Manzurtelevision writer and director, best known for hit British sitcom We are parts of a lady, here is his film debut. “What I love most about film and television is the opportunity to engage marginalized communities in mainstream genres — action, science fiction, comedy,” says the director, “and occupy narrative spaces where we are often invisible. I also wanted to make a movie about two sisters that was about sisterly love, because I don’t think you see that in many films. It’s a very close and loving relationship, but when you fight with your brothers and/or sisters, the conflict can be very violent.”
