“Our Intezaar (Waiting) will have its world premiere at the Harlem International Film Festival in New York. See the link for all films being shown and how to watch online,” she tweeted.

According to the film’s original synopsis: A family waits. A father waiting for his family to leave him, a mother waiting for her son to come home, and a daughter taking care of her aging parents, waiting for them to pass on. The loneliness, the indifference of children, and the fear of death, ever approaching. However, under this gloom, they find reasons to live. A love renewed, a chance to fix old mistakes for the father, the opportunity of a new life for the daughter. Even amongst the despairing, hopeless lives they as a family lead, even amongst the sudden death in the family that would happen to them, they find reasons to celebrate life, to live on. To continue waiting for what’s yet to come.

Written by Bee Gul, the film features Samina Ahmed, Khalid Ahmed, Kaif Ghaznavi, Raza Ali Abid, and Adnan Jaffar in leading roles.
