23-year-old filmmaker Kiana Kalantar-Hormozi from Riddrie in Glasgow 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’ which has been supported and funded by members of Scottish Against the Care Tax, including the Coalition of Carers in Scotland

The ‘Care Tax’ affects Kiana and over 10,000 other people with disabilities in Scotland. It costs individuals a total of £18 million a year.

Kiana makes her protest against the injustice of care charges using the unexpected format of hip-hop – with music track by the renowned Indian-Scottish hip-hop artist Bigg Taj, recent winner of third place in the UK Beatbox Championships.

‘Tax On Me’ tells Kiana’s own story. Kiana needs support to make her daily life possible; 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 “fights the Care Tax one beat at a time”.
