Global politics with your usual noir denizens
27 November 2012 | by sahib-qalamSee all my reviews

I would highly recommend checking out this 40-minute Pakistani-noir film for its attempt at intersecting global politics with your usual noir denizens: wronged prodigal son, femme fatals with good connections, and militant Taliban sympathizers. I'm not sure the film quite comes together at the end, but it really gets you thinking about Pakistan in a different way than films like "A Mighty Heart," which only focus on one side of things. Also, the soundtrack by Dr. Das and Janaka Selecta are awesome. San Francisco-based director Saqib Mausoof discusses the film on his website, www.kalapul.com. Hyphen magazine.

Hyphen started in 2002, spurred by the shuttering of a.Magazine, a small group of 20-and-30-something journalists and artists got together to fill the void by envisioning the kind of magazine we always wanted to read: a publication that would go beyond celebrity interviews and essays about discovering our roots, which we found a long time ago, thank-you- very-much.
