Two-day Gandhara Film Festival

KARACHI, Sept 28: A decent variety of films were screened on the inaugural day of the two-day Gandhara Film Festival at the PACC auditorium on Friday.

The event opened with a short film ‘Heal’ by Mian Adnan Ahmed. The film has been shown at more than a dozen film festivals around the world. It tells the story of a child Azeem (Ameer Zhowandai) who lives in a conflict-ridden region somewhere between Pakistan and Afghanistan. It is a quaint little setting in a mountainous zone. In the beginning of the short movie, it is established that Azeem has a gift of ‘healing’ living beings. He runs into an injured goat and as he touches the animal to comfort it, it gets up as if nothing had happened to it.View the original article here
