EMMY FOR ASAD
Pakistani filmmakers have begun to make their presence felt on the global stage. Earlier this month, Saim Sadiq’s short film Darling won an award at the Venice Film Festival.
And on Sept 24, another young Pakistani director Asad Faruqi gave us good reason to be optimistic about our industry by winning an American News and Documentary Emmy for his film Armed with Faith in the ‘Outstanding Politics and Government Documentary’ category. The documentary tells the tale of the valiant men of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa bomb defusal squad.
Congrats to Asad F! More please.
