Vasl Artist's Collective in collaboration with T2F
Arts Council England and British Council present a program of three short films by artist and filmmaker, Seemab Gul.
Seemab Gul was a visiting Vasl artist supported by the Arts Council England and British Council. Seemab is a British-Pakistani filmmaker and a graduate of the London Film School with a special interest in stories from South Asia. She presented 3 short films at the end of her stay in Pakistan at the T2F on Sunday, May 28, 2016 and discussed her interests in filming and portraying cultural conflicts with audience members. The films projected at T2F touched upon issues such as migration and societal restraints. Her research in Pakistan during this trip extends toward multiple themes which she intends on taking forward in upcoming projects.
