Screening of “Saving Face”
Students from L’ecole were invited to attend the screening of “Saving Face”, the Oscar-winning documentary (short) by Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy at the Royal Rodale Club. The event organized by the U.S. Consulate Cultural Affairs was part of the larger ‘16 days of Activism’, a series of events centred around the socialist aspect of several controversial, sensitive and (some) tabooed topics occurring in Pakistan. The event we visited involved talking about ‘acid attacks’, a disgusting crime committed across Pakistan which has been targeted by socialist, humanitarians and government ministers alike.
