Short Pakistani film inspired by cyberpunk classics

You may remember Omar Gilani’s version of sci-fi Pakistan. But if you thought that was the only futuristic depiction of Pakistan, here is another.

Upcoming Pakistani short film, titled ‘Shehr-e-Tabassum’s, teaser has been released and it is unlike anything you will see from the Pakistani animation industry.

First look at the teaser will remind you of classics like Blade Runner, Ghost in the Shell, Akira, and novels like George Orwell’s 1984. It is indeed inspired by these cyberpunk and dystopian era books, animations and films.

The film hopes to introduce Pakistani audience to a genre that is not so common in the country. It is the brainchild of Ayesha Iftikhar and is directed by Arafat Mazhar.
