‘Song of La­hore’

Slogan - - NATIONAL NEWS -

Pak­istani doc­u­men­tary ‘Song of La­hore’ will be played at the ‘Tribeca Film Fes­ti­val 2015’ in New York.

The doc­u­men­tary has been se­lected for World Doc­u­men­tary Fea­ture Com­pe­ti­tion at the Fes­ti­val. It is the only Pak­istani en­try out of the 12 in­ter­na­tional doc­u­men­taries se­lected for the prize and will be con­sid­ered for ‘Best Doc­u­men­tary Fea­ture’, ‘Best New Doc­u­men­tary Direc­tor’ and ‘Best Doc­u­men­tary Edit­ing’ at the cel­e­brated film fes­ti­val.

‘Song of La­hore’ fo­cuses on the mu­sic com­mu­nity of La­hore, which un­til the late 1970s, was world-renowned for its mu­sic and tal­ent. It turns the spot­light on Sachal Stu­dios and charts the en­sem­ble’s jour­ney to re­claim and re­vive an art that has lost its space in Pak­istan’s nar­row­ing cul­tural sphere.

The Tribeca Film Fes­ti­val was founded by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosen­thal, and Craig Hatkoff in 2001, fol­low­ing the at­tacks on the World Trade Cen­ter, to spur the eco­nomic and cul­tural re­vi­tal­iza­tion of the lower Man­hat­tan dis­trict through an an­nual cel­e­bra­tion of film, mu­sic, and cul­ture.
