Original ‘Serious Cinema’ Acclaimed at Karachi Film Festival
The audience’s response towards both the documentaries was very positive… a gesture that suggest that our audience is certainly maturing for different genres of film other than entertainment. The first in the row happened to be Across the LoC: Indian Administered Kashmir, directed by young Munizae Jahangir and pertaining to the eye opening reality of the Kashmir occupied by India without the shield of censor that the audience usually happens to see. The director is a young film maker who is currently working as Pakistan’s correspondent of NDTV and is based in Lahore. Another was My Brother My Enemy, which revolves around the time when after more than a decade, the Indian cricket team visited Pakistan and the vibes that it carried in the air of both the states. The creator, again a young man Masood Khan, is a student at the National Film and Television School in the UK.
