Grab some popcorn and join us for an exclusive screening of Fahad Naveed’s ‘Puff Puff Pak’, a film that examines our cultural relationships with tobacco.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion and a Q&A session with the filmmaker.

ABOUT THE FILM

After quitting cigarettes in New York, former chain-smoker, Fahad returns home to Karachi, where smoking is still tied to masculinity. Here feminists are lighting cigarettes to fight the patriarchy, and his mother is battling cancer. Kicking the habit in New York is one thing, but will he be able to stay off cigarettes back in Pakistan?

Film duration: 27 minutes
