had a special screening for academy members in Los Angeles yesterday and the resounding response was that this is a top shelf film with excellent performances, crafty storytelling, strong visuals and beautiful music. Many members stuck around for a couple of hours after the film discussing aspects of it with the 3 of us. So many were enthralled by what they saw. “This May have been the first Pakistani film that I have seen, but after this, will certainly not be my last”
The best foreign picture nomination is an incredibly prestigious one this year with films the likes of ‘Roma’, ‘Shoplifters’ and ‘Cold War’ in contention. Our little film may not make it to top 5, but it’s definitely helped change perceptions about Pakistan.
It’s been a beautiful journey and we all have tons of gratitude 🙏🏼❤️
