Two-time Academy Award winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy is on a roll as she has announced the release of Pakistan’s first Virtual Reality film series, ‘Look But With Love’ (Dekh Magar Pyaar Se).
The 5-part documentary series is set to be premiered at the upcoming 55th New York Film Festival first, the inaugural Tribeca TV Festival and the Future of Storytelling.
‘Look But With Love’ is a virtual reality documentary series about the extraordinary people of Pakistan who are involved in changing the sociopolitical landscape of their communities through causes they are deeply passionate about.
The documentary accounts the heartfelt and awe-inspiring stories of daring, passion-driven Pakistanis on life-saving missions; a doctor from the slums who has dedicated his whole life to provide free emergency care to children, a brave bunch of women in Nowshera, and many more courageous untold stories.
In Pakistan, Look But With Love is part of the Dil Se Campaign – Pakistan’s first trans-media campaign which entails documentaries, music videos, TV shows, radio programs, virtual reality experiences, social media activities, animation series, film festivals and on-ground activities across the country to celebrate Pakistan’s diversity, acknowledge its unsung heroes and enable social good. The series will be showcased across Pakistan in schools and colleges starting September 2017.
On releasing Pakistan’s first ever Virtual Reality documentary series, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy said:
“Virtual Reality as an experience is very immersive. I wanted audiences to interact with Pakistan in a completely different manner. In the series, I have focused on Pakistan’s unsung heroes… you will be able to literally walk in their shoes as they fight to save children in emergency hospitals and bring clean water to villages – finally a series where you can understand the spirit of the struggle of everyday heroes as they address Pakistan’s most pressing issues.”
We can’t wait to experience another masterpiece created by Sharmeen and can hardly wait for it!
