Gardaab - Film Screening and discussion with Harune Massey
Department of Liberal Arts (DLA) at Seeta Majeed School of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (SLASS) hosted a screening of upcoming Pakistani drama film, Gardaab (Whirlpool), followed by a discussion with its director Harune Massey. The event was held on March 20, 2017 at SLASS Auditorium.
With echoes of Romero & Juliet, Gardaab is a taut and stylized thriller about two lovers (played by Fawad Khan and Amna Ilyas) caught in a web of family and gang warfare in the underbelly of Karachi. The audience thoroughly enjoyed the movie and later discussed its narrative and production techniques with the director, Harune Massey. He told students that he has taken real life stories and anecdotes from the streets of Karachi to give a realistic touch to the movie.
Also present on the occasion were DLA faculty members Mr. Naveed Alam, Mr. Shehzad Amjad, and TFT faculty member Dr. Wajeeha Rizvi.
