SGS Summer Film Festival: Zinda Bhaag

Three young men try to escape the reality of their everyday lives in the a nondescript neighborhood of Lahore in Pakistan. Khaldi, Taambi and Chitta, all in their early twenties, are desperate to get on to the fast track to success and believe they can achieve that by going out West. The journey that unfolds gives us a glimpse into what constitutes the everyday in the lives of many young men and women in Pakistan. Directed by Meenu Gaur, Pakistan (2013).
Q&A to follow with Sangeeta Mediratta, Associate Director of the Center for South Asia.
This film is part of the annual SGS Summer Film Festival running from July 13th to September 7th. This year's festival features nine films from around that world that focus on the theme of “Youth Culture in Global Cinema.” For more information on the film festival, please visit SGS Summer 2016 Film Festival.
