Special Event w/Filmmaker Ayesha Khan

2 February 2012

OFG, with ARTSwego, will host a free community event with Pakistani filmmaker Ayesha Khan on Wednesday, February 15 at 6 PM in the Community Room of the Oswego Public Library (120 East 2nd Street). We will screen the documentary Ms Khan produced, Made in Pakistan. The film focuses on the lives of four young professionals in Pakistan during the state of emergency under President Musharraf in 2007. The hour-long film won the Audience Choice Award for Best Documentary at the New York South Asian International Film Festival.

During the evening, guests will be able to sample some typical South Asian food as they view the film and discuss it informally. The event is free but guests are asked to register in advance by contacting artswego@oswego.edu or calling 315-312-4581.

Producer, director, and actress Ayesha Khan visits Oswego as part of Caravanserai: A place where cultures meet, connecting US audiences with artists from the Muslim world. ARTSwego is only of only five US arts groups chosen to host the 2011-12 Caravanserai season. The program is an initiative of Arts Midwest, with support from the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art, South Arts, and the NEA.
