‘Don’t Get Too Comfortable’ is a heartfelt introspective letter to the director's deceased grandfather. The letter questions the continuous pattern of movement amongst Yemenis in diaspora via her ancestral journey. The film fuses archival photographs, sourced footage, parallax animation, abstract videos to create an audio visual body of work that calls attention to the collective feeling of statelessness and sense of being felt by Yemeni (or non-Yemeni) migrants
