Thinking Films: Jago Huwa Savera (1959)

Jago Hua Savera-01

Dear Friends, Artists, Cinephiles,

We present to you Thinking Films, a series of film screenings curated to explore storytelling in world cinema. Our selection is not fixated on any one genre or language. Blockbusters, classics, arthouse, experimental and foreign films will all have their day!

The films will be introduced by filmmaker, writer (and unabashed geek) Sabeeh Ahmad, and each screening will be followed by an open discussion about the work and its craft.

This week’s offering: Jago Huwa Savera (1959)

Director: A. J. Kardar

Screenplay: Faiz Ahmed Faiz

A co-production of artists from the Eastern and Western wings of Pakistan, Jago Huwa Savera depicts the lives of East Pakistani fishermen in the village of Saitnol (near Dhaka) and their struggles with loan sharks. The film was screened at the 2008 New York Film Festival and as part of the Cannes Classics section at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
