'Rape is a rampant issue'; taboo drama Verna battles the censors in Pakistan
Rejected for its ‘edgy content’, Shoaib Mansoor’s timely revenge thriller has finally made it into cinemas after a public backlash. Is the country’s film industry ready for change?In recent years, Pakistan has seen a huge resurgence of its film industry, which has emerged from the shadow of Bollywood to find its own identity, one at the forefront of the battle between a growing conservatism in the country and an emboldened youth hungry for change. There’s a notable trend towards female-led narratives, which are not only setting new standards in storytelling, but also challenging taboos around the treatment of women in society. The battle to get the voices and experiences of women on screen achieved a much-needed victory this week when the Pakistani censor board backed down over a decision to ban a new film about the injustices faced by rape victims in the country – a development that shows that Pakistan might be ready for change both on screen and off.It’s not just about sex or rape, it is about one person having power over another and how people misuse that powerThank you to all those who supported #verna - the people, the media, those at the censor board.. thank you so much! Hoping for Punjab to clear Verna today as well. Continue reading... [...]
