Anima State @ London Short Film Festival

  • Institute of Contemporary Arts The Mall, St James's London, SW1Y 5AH UK (map)

The most important film to come out of Pakistan in decades; a provocative, allegorical tragicomic metaphor for the multitude of ‘anonymous’ threats in contemporary Pakistan and the national apathy towards the rot in society. An uncomfortable, in-your-face examination of Pakistan, from its violence to its apathy to its refusal to recognize its moral corruption, taking on the media, politics, religion and even sports, in a way that scrutinizes and implicates everyone, including the viewer.

As the 70th anniversary celebrations of Pakistan’s independence from British India draw to a close, Anima State interrogates the very notion of freedom, sovereignty and security for the country and its inhabitants.
