I Am Cursed is writer and director Shiraz Khan's first attempt at a feature length film and he could not have chosen a more adventurous story line. Lisa, played by Alissa Cristie, is a frustrated journalist, always searching for her story which will give her that big break she has always wanted. Only one thing is holding her back, a lack of those stories. When ever one comes in it always seems to get assigned to another journalist including her rival Dan, a man with excellent family connections.

Then, when hope is all but gone, Lisa's big story walks through the door in the form of a man called Jay, played by Shiraz Khan himself. The story is not the man, its the secret he is concealing. Dan does not like this new pairing and so sets out to disrupt the newly founded partnership between Lisa and Jay. But as time goes on Lisa becomes more suspicious of her new partner. Upon investigation she discovers some truths about Jay that she would rather not have known.

Now this looks to be a real interesting project with a good and solid foundation and some rather new ideas. Being that Shiraz is the director, writer and one of the lead roles, can only lead to one cohesive and structurally sound piece of cinema. He has one vision, one idea as to what this film will become and with the amount of involvement from the creator that can only aid the outcome of this film.

It would seem Shiraz lacks any deal of experience in feature length films but is that to say it wont be a success. He had however had extensive experience in short films. He has both created and starred in shorts which have been screened in various film festivals around the world.

Many a great director, writer and actor had to start somewhere and for Shiraz Khan that somewhere could be here.
