You are invited to join us for a UK screening of Shadowlands: Life After Conflict in Lyari produced by Dr. Nida Kirmani.

Shadowlands: Life After Conflict in Lyari, Karachi follows the stories of two residents of the area of Lyari in Karachi, Nawaz Laasi and Amna Baloch. Lyari is one of Karachi’s oldest settlements and is home to approximately 1.5 million people. It has also been labelled one of the city’s ‘no-go areas’ because of the on-going conflicts that have taken place there. Both Amna and Nawaz have lost family members as a result of the conflict. Nawaz has lost four sons, two to gang violence and two at the hands of the police, and Amna’s husband was killed by the police. Through telling their stories, this documentary sheds light on the on-going ramifications of violence and questions whether peace has truly been achieved for the people of Lyari.

The event will begin with an introduction with producer Dr Nida Kirmani, Associate Professor of Sociology at the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS). Following the film screening there will be an opportunity for questions with the film producers.
