    Dissecting "Cuties" (feat. Author Soniah Kamal)

    Dissecting "Cuties" (feat. Author Soniah Kamal)

    Netflix's latest release, French film Mignonnes (or Cuties in English) by Maïmouna Doucouré, has everyone talking about it—but not in a positive light. With posters and trailers depicting preteen girls dancing lewdly to inappropriate music and wearing provocative clothing, this film has enraged quite a number of people, from Netflix users to state representatives, some even calling for the platform to be cancelled. However, there is more to this film than what's shown at face value, which is why Farheen decided to sit down and talk about it, along with some special guests: Soniah Kamal, author of the acclaimed novel Unmarriageable, and Sumana Syed, a first-year film student and production manager of Authentic & Unfiltered.

    Featuring: Soniah Kamal (@soniahkamal) and Sumana Syed (@sumana.f.syed)

    Under the Influencer - The psychology behind being a ‘follower’

    Under the Influencer - The psychology behind being a ‘follower’

    Influencers, or public figures on social media, have a lot of power over how we may perceive ourselves and on our perspectives—hence why they're called "influencers." They can both be a positive and negative presence in our lives, and especially today, we tend to put these influencers on a pedestal. Freeni sits down with licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor and founder of MAPS, Dr. Abida Minhas, where they discuss what influence means, what positive and negative influence looks like, and why we feel like influencers are so important in our current society.

Freeni sits down with licensed Family & Marriage counselor, Dr. Sheeza Mohsin, in which they discuss what signs to look for in a bad relationship and if the relationship has to end.

Love it!

Great episode about cuties! I’m debating on it. I want to watch it for the sake of artistic value, but at the same time, it’s 11 year olds being specialized. Thanks for the thought provoking chat!
