This film is part of RSA Pakistan Calling. The Royal Society of Arts & Commerce and The Samosa launched RSA Pakistan Calling to promote constructive cross-cultural dialogue between Britain and Pakistan. The films depict Pakistani civil society organisations and individuals attempting to tackle the country's many pressing social problems and the many links between Britain and Pakistan. Over sixty films have gone on line depicting lives and issues in Pakistan unseen by the mainstream.
From ambulance drivers and disability welfare projects in Karachi; minority rights workers and street children’s welfare in Lahore; women rights activists in Islamabad, archaeologists in Sindh and conflict resolution / peace activists in Kashmir.
The films witness life through the eyes of ordinary and extraordinary Pakistanis. The films also seek to highlight those Pakistani civil society organisations and individuals attempting to tackle the country's many pressing social problems and the many links between Britain and Pakistan.
The films help these groups in their advocacy, at a time when Pakistan is at risk of isolation due to conflict in the region and the YouTube ban. Show your support by watching and sharing the films with your colleagues, friends and family, spread the word for the organisations and groups featured in the films. All films are on Vimeo and can be viewed at www.thersa.org/pkcalling
