Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy Films just launched a short film series titled Home 1947 with its first short Beila, directed by famed director Kamal Khan. The series 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.
Produced by Gali Films, titled Beila, the short shows Faiza Gillani as a mother singing her baby to sleep on a train as she recalls the horrors she witnessed amidst the violence of 1947.
According to the official press statement, “Home 1947 is a 7-part short film series conceptualized and produced by SOC Films, which recreate 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.”
