Lahore (Muhammad Yasir)

Aangun – Center for Learning and Culture hosted a film screening event featuring international award-winning films “Moum k Aansu” by Samran Ali and “Five Stars” by Mehroz Amin. The event was attended by a large number of youth from diverse backgrounds, who had the opportunity to watch the films and participate in question and answer sessions with the filmmakers and their teams.

“Moum k Aansu” is a film that tells the story of Salma who wants a secure future for her daughter but doesn’t know what to do because of her profession as a sex worker. “Five Stars” is a film about a young girl who leaves her home to follow her heart only for it to be broken, and a chance encounter with her taxi driver restores her faith in kindness. These films have been highly praised for their powerful performances and emotional depth.

The film screening event was a huge success and received positive feedback from attendees. Aangun – Center for Learning and Culture plans to continue hosting similar events in the future to promote local artists and engage with the community.
