Salaam Pakistan Film Festival: Song of Lahore + Q&A

As part of a new touring programme of cutting-edge Pakistani and British Pakistani films, LIFF presents a screening of Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy’s award winning documentary Song of Lahore.

Lahore has always been world-renowned for its music. With the increased Islamisation of Pakistan in the 1970s, many of the city’s celebrated musicians have struggled, but this film spotlights one group, the internationally acclaimed Sachal Jazz Ensemble, who have kept on playing. When their unique mix of traditional music with Western flare gets the attention of jazz supremo Wynton Marsalis they are invited to New York. The film will be preceded by a short film, Woh Ek Din by Zafar Ali.

Supported by BFI, Film Hub North and Rangoonwala Foundation.
Saturday 16 March, 18.00
