FAKEERA – AN UNEXCEPTIONAL STORY
Jürgen Schaflechner | Pakistan 2012 | 10 Min. | OmeU
Far from what we may hear in the news about Pakistan,this film portrays the life of an artist from Thando Allah Yar in the District of Sindh. Fakeera, a Hindu, is a successful sculptor of Hindu Gods and Goddesses for Pakistan’s temples. His story is unexceptional and thus introduces a side of Pakistan that many are not interested in portraying. The documentary shows the quiet life of an art loving man who teaches his Muslim apprentices the skill of creating remarkable images.
