Wounds of Waziristan | Trailer
Support Our Work!
I had a chance to be part of this excellent, inspirational and thoughtful conference organized by Pakistani scholars and activists in Toronto. An upcoming issue of Tanqeed.org will cover several of the papers at the conference.
On Oct 22.2013, I had the pleasure of briefly discussing the situation in Waziristan as well as the documentary:
Our wonderful composer, Andre Barros worked with us to produce beautiful music for WOUNDS. Here’s the music video of the title song:
We’ve got just $800 more to go! And, 14 days left. Thank you to all of you have supported us. Please help spread the word as we make the final push.
I just wanted to make a quick note of a few things here: First, I’ll be presenting at the DARC conference along with Shahzad Akbar, the lawyer who has been demanding justice for drone affectees as well as filmmaker and academic Wazhmah Osman. You can find out more about our panel and register here.
I’ll also be doing a reading at Page Turner, a festival by the Asian American Writers’ Workshop on October 5th. Festival details here.
WOUNDS‘ graphics and animations editor, AJ Russo, working double time and rocking the graphics for the film. You can check out more of AJ’s spectacular work here and here. I think one of the more wonderful aspects of working on a film is how much of an intensely collaborative process it is –quite unlike print journalism or academia, the other two worlds which I inhabit.
A photo from a few days ago: one of our editors, Messiah Rhodes, working hard on our film in my cluttered space. Our “studio” is my dining room table. There’s a little Tulsi packet there too, next to the mouse – a little bit of the Pakistani streets – and my addiction when I am working well into the stupid hours of the morning.
