We met Kashf: The Lifting of the Veil director Ayesha Khan at 2008 Santa Fe Film Festival and she’s returning to the festival – 2009 Santa Fe Film Festival – with a new documentary film – Made in Pakistan – as the Executive Producer. Please join Ayesha Khan at the screenings of Made In Pakistan on Friday, December 4 [@ Devargas Cinemas No. 3 @ 562 N. Guadalupe Street @ 8:30pm] and Sunday, December 6 [@ NM History Museum @ 105 West Washington Avenue @ 2:45pm] at 10th Annual Santa Fe Film Festival and she’ll be holding a Q&A after the screenings.
The award winning documentary – Made In Pakistan – is an insider’s look into “The Most Dangerous Country in the World” as a cover story in Newsweek October 2007 Issue. Made In Pakistan follows the lives of four Pakistani working professionals – two women entrepreneurs, a politician and a lawyer. These four individuals represent a multifaceted Pakistan – a country where politics, fashion, religion, debate and tradition intermingle – where one definition of an Islamic State no longer holds true.
Made In Pakistan was released theatrically in Pakistan on July 31st 2009 – it’s the first documentary ever to be released theatrically in Pakistan! The documentary recently won the Audience Choice Award at the SAIFF Film Festival in NYC. Made In Pakistan was also invited to screen at the Mumbai Film Festival November 2009 – the only film from across the border to do so.
In the spirit of Activist Cinema, the Producers of Made In Pakistan have joined hands with the non-profit organization, Developments in Literacy DIL [www.yourdil.org] to create awareness for the urgent need to fund schools for girls in Pakistan. Ayesha Khan will talk about this amazing organization of Pakistani American professionals who fund close to 150 schools in Pakistan.
