Another proud moment for Pakistan!
Pakistani filmmaker Shehzad Hameed Ahmad’s documentary has won big at Paris Film Festival 2021.

Singapore-based Pakistani filmmaker Shehzad Hameed Ahmad’s documentary titled ‘Caught in the Crossfire’ won the Best Feature Documentary award at the prestigious Paris Film Festival 2021.

The filmmaker wants to give people the experience of the war, the uncertainty of it, and the paradoxes.

Sharing about his win on social media, Shehzah in an Instagram post said, “My Afghan war documentary ‘Caught in the Crossfire’ has won the Best Feature Documentary award at the prestigious Paris Film Festival 2021 @paris_filmfestival.”

The documentary narrates the lives of 3 ordinary civilians: a journalist, a female street artist, and a young Army cadet who are stuck in this never-ending war between the Taliban and the Afghan government.

While the second part focuses on how we obtained rare access into Taliban bad Lands, and understand why the Taliban are gaining control of more territory, 18 years since America invaded the country.

In a tweet, the award-winning filmmaker shared, “Thrilled that my Afghan war film ‘Caught in the Crossfire’ wins the Best Feature Documentary award at Paris Film Festival 2021.”
