Gardaab Film Screening
April 27, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Set in Karachi, Pakistan, Gardaab (Whirlpool) is an intimate portrait of a city, rife with ethnic & class divisions, and turf wars. In this pulsating cityscape blooms a tender romance between a boy and girl from warring factions. Gardaab is a story of this romance and the violence that surrounds it. Gardaab also lays bare the cyclical nature of an environment, where a constant flow of young recruits, feed this violence.
Harune Massey’s restrained direction takes real life stories and anecdotes, and turns them into a compelling meditation on the fragility of human life.
