Fawad Khan, Sanam Saeed’s ‘Barzakh’ Poster Unveiled
Barzakh is the only selection this year from South Asia at the Series Mania Festival in France
Fawad Khan and Sanam Saeed’s Barzakh poster has been unveiled.
The upcoming Zee 5 web series is the only South Asian selection at Series Mania this year.
Barzakh is helmed by critically acclaimed director Asim Abbasi who also directed Zindagi’s first Pakistani original “Churails” and the feature film “Cake.”
As reported earlier Barzakh will debut in the showcase’s International Panorama, a 12-title competitive section, eligible for the best series, director, actress, actor, student jury and audience awards.
The series has been shot in Karachi and the picturesque Hunza Valley of Pakistan.
Fawad Khan will be seen portraying the role of a single parent who is filled with guilt for something that he has lost.
Talking about the series, Fawad Khan said, “Coinciding with our Series Mania premiere, our poster that we now reveal to the world offers an early glimpse into what can be expected from the series – abstract beauty and ambiguity that reflects the complexities in navigating human relationships in a post-modern world.”
While Sanam Saeed plays the central female character.
“It is a beautiful piece of storytelling and our premiere at Series Mania demonstrates that this is content befitting of an international audience, transcending geographical, cultural and lingual barriers,” Saeed said about Barzakh.
The director of the series, Abbasi said, “Love and memory are both central thematic components of ‘Barzakh.’ We wanted a visual that represented love in its eternal manifestation but, which like memory, also had a fleeting, ephemeral quality about – like time slipping by and evaporating around us, leaving behind a distant but vivid memory of the moment it all began.”
