come here me talk

May 31, 2010


i will be speaking about my films and the cinema in general at the t2f this sunday from 1730 hours. if you are in karachi, or know someone who would be interested, please come by and spread the word.

Taking back Lollywood, one screening at a time!

A year ago, Ahmer Naqvi decided to leave the megalomaniac world of the Pakistani media, determined to find something better to say, using another medium – film. For the past year, he has been making short films as a Masters student. He now comes to the T2F to talk about his own work, its relationship to Pakistan as well as the state of cinema within the country. He also brings with him vague pretensions of beginning a movement of young Pakistani artists – sick of obsessing about the country’s politics and its image abroad – but eager to explore the dramatic, breathless reality which is life in Pakistan. Join us for a screening of his works accompanied by a wide ranging discussion on everything from Maula Jutt to Jean-Luc Godard, and whatever comes in between.
