My Pure Land
British director Sarmud Masud delivers a taut, wired story based on true facts, set in rural Pakistan. Set over the course of a single night, it sees a homestead being attacked by a group of marauding men, intent on seizing the property from two girls. The star of the film is Suhaee Abro, playing teenager Nazo, who has to look after her younger sister and defend their home from her frankly, revolting uncle Mehrban, who has already killed Nazo’s father and brother. As the fighting intensifies, Nazo needs every molecule of strength and fortitude to deal with these men - who will stop at nothing to get their hands on the property. A feature that’s justifiably attracted a lively pre-festival buzz, this dark, powerful and feminist-positive film is one of the highlights of the year.
