Meet talented young actress and filmmaker Ayesha Khan as she showcases her documentary, “Made in Pakistan”.
An insider’s look into “The Most Dangerous Country in the World” (as labeled by a cover story in Newsweek, Oct. 29, 2007), “Made in Pakistan” follows the lives of four young Pakistani professionals who defy this prevailing stereotype of the country by the very choices they have made in their lives. Shot during Pervez Musharraf’s state of emergency in 2007, this real slice of life reveals a country where one definition of an Islamic State no longer holds true.
Screening presented by FirstWorks as part of our year-long Caravanserai project—introducing American audiences to Sufi artists, filmmakers & musicians through a series of intensive community engagement and performance programs. This project is an initiative of the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Arts, administered by Arts Midwest.
This event is supported in part by a grant from the RI Council for the Humanities, an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, with additional support from the Brown University Creative Arts Council.
