Trendy attends the Hollywood premiere of ‘A Boy. A Girl. A Dream’

For his last film “Mooz-Lum,” director Qasim Basir managed to garner huge interest in the poetic story about a young Muslim man struggling to fit in with society and in his latest drama, “A Boy. A Girl. A Dream,” he tells the story of a young midwesterner and a club promoter meeting on the night of the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
