Pakistani short film, HOME1947 has won the Best Film [Short Documentary] Award at the South Asian Film Festival of Montréal 2020.
The series by SOC Films is a deeply personal exploration of the lives and stories of the millions that were displaced in 1947 during the creation of two new independent states, India and Pakistan.
According to a press release, the short recreates the long-lost sights and sounds of what millions once called home and explores this world not through the words of historians and politicians, but through the eyes of those who lived through it.
In order to keep their stories alive for coming generations, several very diverse points of view are illuminated through documentary footage, voiceovers, historical archives and nostalgia.
The films which are part of HOME1947 series that won the Best Film [Short Documentary] award at SAFFM 2020, include Ghosts of the Past, Midnight Fury, Khamosh Pani (Silent Water), Weaving Memories, Zameen and Dark Secrets.
