|Tourist With A Typewriter Ltd. is an independent, award-winning documentary production company dedicated to creative human rights and social justice documentaries.
Tourist With A Typewriter Ltd. was founded in 2004 by filmmakers Saeed Taji Farouky and Gareth Keogh in order to tell challenging, immersive, humanistic stories. Our documentaries look behind the obvious sensationalism of daily news and ask how individual lives fit into the bigger picture.
