Horn Please
Director:
 Shantanu SumanIstling Mirche

India | 31mins | 2013 | World Premiere

Synopsis: Horn Please is a documentary that encapsulates various aspects of an age-old folk art form of India, the Truck Art, an art form that makes journeys through the dusty highways of India, incredible in more ways than one. With a kaleidoscope of bright paints, motifs, typography and unique couplets, these Indian trucks take you on a rather colorful journey of diverse cultures and beliefs of the country.

This documentary focuses on the origin of truck art and how it influences not just the world of art, but also the lives of its artists and the truckers who interact with it on a daily basis. Largely, it investigates on whether the once-accepted art form will survive the test of time in this era of capitalism.

The Other Army
Director: 
Sana Haq

Pakistan | 27mins | 2013 | World Premiere

Synopsis: The Other Army is a documentary that seeks to understand the issues faced by Pakistan in its struggle against terrorism. It tributes the people who have sacrificed their lives in counter-terrorism efforts and provides a glimpse into the lives of their survivors. The film brings to light the Pakistanis who believe in the need to root out fanaticism, extremism, and to restore peace and stability to the world. Over 3,500 members of the Pakistani army have died in combat and 40,000 civilians have died as a consequence of terrorism and the war against it since 2001. The film counters the popular narrative in the American media that Pakistan is complicit in supporting terrorists.
