Made In Pakistan: What It’s Like to Live in the “World’s Most Dangerous Country”
‘Made in Pakistan’ is a Pakistani documentary following the lives of four young Pakistanis through General Pervez Musharraf’s state of emergency in 2007. The lawyer, the journalist, the politician and the public relations manager walk us through everyday life in “the world’s most dangerous country” as labeled by Newsweek Magazine in October 2007.
It will be viewed by audiences in Karachi tomorrow and will then make its way to Islamabad and Lahore. Pakistanis struggle every day with the stereotypes that come with hailing from the “world’s most dangerous country”. The documentary makers, Nasir Khan (director), Adil Sher and Rizwan Saeed (producers) thus sought to show a “glimpse of Pakistan through the eyes of Pakistanis.”
A reviewer for a Pakistan weekly paper, The Friday Times, is keen to point out it is not a ‘defensive’ 60 minutes, just a slice of what things are actually like. “It leaves one ruminating from start to finish, and its theme–open to interpretation–allows you to understand the grey areas (present in Pakistan’s socio-political position) which are in stark contrast against the blacks and whites.”
