It hasn’t been a while when we first heard that Sharemeen Obaid Chinoy is the first Pakistani Film maker nominated for Oscars. That was a great news but none of us had actually seen, heard or watched anything about “Saving Face“.
Recently at Karachi Literature Festival, Chinoy showed some clips of her Short Film on request that no camera will cover that. It was disallowed back then but now it seems like the restriction might have been unturned so now finally we have the first teaser/trailer of Saving Face.
About Saving Face (Short Film Documentary)
Chinoy’s Saving Face is nominated under the category of “2012 Academy Award Nominee For Documentary (Short Subject)”. The short film is directed by Oscar and Emmy nominated filmmaker Daniel Junge and Emmy winning Pakistan director Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy.
The documentary highlights the issue that every year in Pakistan, there are at least 100 people attacked with acid – the majority women. Many such cases go unreported most of the time. The new documentary SAVING FACE is the story of two survivors of such attacks — their battle for justice and their journey of healing.
