"Asad is a lyrical, moving and beautifully realized portrayal of a world we rarely get to see in cinema. Every shot of the film is well thought out and specific to this unique world - a fishing village in Somalia. Yet Asad's most astounding achievement is boasting an array of brilliant performances by a cast of Somali refugees. Congratulations to writer/director Bryan Buckley and his amazing cast on making a short film that is rather large in spirit, ambition and accomplishment."
~TriBeCa Film Festival Jury

Set in a war-torn fishing village in Somalia, the coming-of-age story of a Somali boy who is faced with falling into the pirate life, or rising above to choose the path of an honest fishing man.

INSPIRATION
"On the day we commenced principal photography our leading actors, Harun Mohammed, 13, and his younger brother, Ali Mohammed, 10, had never been to school. They were completely illiterate.

They came from a family of 16 children who had fled war torn Somalia to South Africa six months earlier. Now they had the daunting task of memorizing 19 pages of dialogue in front of a camera with a director who didn't know anything but how to say "yes" and "no" in Somali.
And yet, five long shoot days later, we ended up capturing a little bit of these boys' spirit. And a little bit of a forgotten country's soul.
I really hope people see some hope in this work. Because I know I do."
-Bryan Buckley, Writer/Director ASAD

In 2010 we worked with the UN Human Right's Council shooting a short subject documentary (No Autographs) designed to raise awareness of the growing refugee crisis currently facing the world.
While filming in the Kakuma refugee camp in northern Kenya, we came upon thousands of displaced Somalis. We conducted dozens of interviews. Their stories of escape from both famine and war were both haunting and inspiring. Their sense of pride and humor unforgettable.
Upon returning back to the United States, we made it our mission to continue to tell their untold stories, to shed light on the people of Somalia and their unfathomable struggles. The result is ASAD.
A film who's entire cast is made up of refugees who fled to South Africa.
- Mino Jarjoura, Producer ASAD
