A short film starring Zara Abid playing two characters linked by common but hard-hitting realities hit YouTube after the tragic plane crash.
Earlier on May 22, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) passenger plane flying from Lahore to Karachi with 99 people on board, crashed near Jinnah International Airport in Karachi in the densely populated area of Model Colony on Friday. The PIA flight 8303 also took the life of the model.
Paying a tribute to the model, the film begins with the message, “To you Zara, your undying love. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. It will live in our hearts forever. May your soul rest in peace.”
The short film was directed by Ahmed Sarym, the model’s debut project became her last, it is a brilliant tribute to Zara’s talent. The film shows two sides of the same story. Two characters with the same end, the same trials and similar struggles – linked by the fact that they are women. The two characters were played by Zara and the film itself is told by Saba Qamar.
The film bearing no dialogues and only Saba’s narration is a thought-provoking watch. It helms the notion of breaking established stereotypes and goes on to question how many of us are any different when all our struggles are the same.
