Karachi, Pakistan. 24 April 2015. A car stops at a red-light. Inside are two women: Sabeen and her mother Mahenaz. Two men on a motorcycle stop and open fire. Sabeen dies on the spot; her mother gets wounded but survives.
The evening that she was killed, Sabeen Mahmud, founder, and director of the well-known Karachi institution T2F, had hosted a discussion on the unexplained and ongoing disappearances of more than 20,000 activists and civilians in the country. Sabeen had been given ominous warnings by unknown visitors and advice by concerned friends, to cancel this event, which others had refused to host. But Sabeen had gone ahead undaunted.
After the film, there will be a Q&A session with Schokofeh Kamiz, the director of the movie.
The language of the movie is English and Urdu. It will be screened at fsk with English subtitles. AKEBİ is organizing the event together with the POC ART Collective.
