With its ancient palaces and stately gardens, the Lahore of Pakistan’s 1947 independence was haven and muse for musicians, artists, and poets. The city came alive to the beat of a tabla drum; with a musical culture passed down over centuries and a thriving film industry, opportunities were great for the legion of musicians that called Lahore home. Today, Islamization, ethnic divisions, war and corruption have torn apart the cultural fabric of Pakistan despite efforts to reclaim and reinvigorate it. Co-presented with TASVEER: Seattle South Asian Film Festival. Rated PG.
