Before she was a nomadic cinematographer, Nausheen was a Southern California native who received her MFA in Cinematography from the American Film Institute. Since graduating she has lensed a number of narrative and documentary films: most recently J'adore Nawal for Lena Dunham's HBO documentary series Lenny which premiered at Sundance, Academy Award Live Action Short nominee La femme et le TGV (The Railroad Lady), and Aaja a music video for Riz Ahmed's hip hop group The Swet Shop Boys. Nausheen's films have played at festivals like TIFF, AFI Fest, and IDFA. Her clients include Field of Vision, HBO, A&E and MSNBC. As a Pakistani-American Nausheen has straddled two cultures all her life. That often gives her a unique perspective as an insider and outsider. Her singular background and experiences come together to inspire her as a storyteller and help her create visuals that resonate across many cultures. Nausheen has been a Film Independent Project:Involve Fellow, a Berlin Talents participant and is a current Firelight Fellow. She is based in New York, Los Angeles and Karachi, where she has broken boundaries to become the only female cinematographer in Pakistan.
