Ayesha Khan, director of feature film KASHF: Lifting of the Veil and executive producer of Made in Pakistan is one of Pakistan’s most talented and dynamic young filmmakers. Ayesha will showcase the film Made in Pakistan to American audiences for the Caravanserai film residencies. Made in Pakistan, a 60-minute documentary directed by Nasir Khan and produced by Ms. Khan, follows the lives of four young, middle-class Pakistanis during Pervez Musharraf’s state of emergency in 2007. Winner of the Audience Choice Award for Best Documentary at the South Asian International Film Festival in New York, Made in Pakistan is a riveting glimpse into life in Pakistan—a country where politics, fashion, religion, debate, and tradition intermingle, where one definition of an Islamic State no longer holds true. A successful example of independent filmmaking in contemporary Pakistan, Made in Pakistan will provide a framework for thought-provoking screenings and discussion led by a bright new voice from Pakistan’s burgeoning film industry.
