Director and young graduate, Kiana Kalantar-Hormozi has a disability that means she needs 24/7 support. Kiana is producer, director and star of a new 4-minute campaign film Tax on Me to fight the injustice of care charges, which impact over 10,000 people in Scotland.

Tax On Me tells Kiana’s own story. Kiana needs support to make her daily life possible and the Care Tax claws back money from her wages, benefits and student bursary. She sees it as unjust financial discrimination against disability. Her new film uses the unexpected format of hip-hop, with the music track by the renowned Indian-Scottish hip-hop artist Bigg Taj.

 

 

Kiana Kalantar-Hormozi, gives us an insight into the absurd impact of social care charges levied on disabled people as they go about their lives.

With music from Bigg Taj, Kiana’s hip-hop protest film fights the Care Tax one beat at a time.
