Launch of Pakistan Calling

Client News

23 July 2013

The RSA and The Samosa have just launched Pakistan Calling  a film project to challenge perceptions of today's Pakistan and to promote constructive cross-cultural dialogue between Britain and Pakistan.

The films depict Pakistani civil society organisations, social entrepreneurs and individuals who are attempting to tackle the country's many pressing social problems.  The aim of the project is to promote cross-cultural dialogue and community trust in the UK and Pakistan by profiling the many different faces of Pakistan and supporting filmmakers working in areas such as the arts,  welfare, education, civil society and citizen journalism.  It’s an attempt to set up real conversations between the Pakistani diaspora in the UK and Pakistan.

The next stage development for the project focuses on the bridge over the Kunhar River at Balakot, a famous landmark. The older bridge was demolished in a heavy earthquake and rebuilt by the Frontier Works Organisation with help of several international and local funding agencies. Pakistan Calling has raised significant profile and awareness in Britain of some of the most progressive, exciting and effective social projects in Pakistan. The Balakot project now takes this to the next stage and is seeking to make powerful, substantive connections between innovative, impactful social projects in Pakistan and groups working on similar themes and projects in cities in Britain including Birmingham, Bradford, Manchester and London.
