Seven short films by Lyari students screened

A film festival showcasing efforts made by teenagers was held in Karachi. Organised by the Karachi Youth Initiative, short films and documentaries based on a variety of ideas were screened. With topics ranging from shrines to football grounds to young students taking up social work, each film had a unique message to send out to its viewers.

Haya Fatima Iqbal, an associate producer at Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy films, was the driving force behind the basic training the young students received. The team comprised of three girls and six boys hailing from Lyari, as well as one student from Baldia Town. Dawn
