A powerful story can change how we see the world
Sometimes it can even change our world
Entertain. Inform. Inspire.
A long, long time ago, a young Pakistan girl heard the story of the Arabian Nights. Mesmerized, she listened as night after night the barbaric king slaughtered his lovers until enthralled by the power of storytelling he was compelled to keep one lover alive. And slowly but surely, he was transformed.
Years later, the girl has grown to be acclaimed Pakistani film-maker, Sabiha Sumar who, with Sathananthan set up Vidhi Films, a company deeply involved with filmmaking as a means of encouraging and catalyzing social change. Vidhi seeks to create inspiring, entertaining and commercially viable cinema. Using the power of storytelling to challenge and combat the silence imposed by religious and political extremism. Nurturing free artistic expression with a vision to engage audiences, foster the spirit of questioning, generate awareness on issues of human rights, gender, and justice, and inspire individuals and communities to seek a better world.
