Female power and resistance where least expected
18 November 2017 | by Morten_5See all my reviews

28th STOCKHOLM INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL. DAY 5, NOV 12th 2017. International premiere.

From the first few frames, this tale of female resistance, and the right to protect what's yours, vibrates with power. It's flawed but inspiring.

Filmed in Lahore, Pakistan, "My Pure Land" (2017) is the feature-length debut of British Pakistani director Sarmad Masud. A British production, it's the UK submission for the Foreign Language Film Award of the 90th Annual Academy Awards.
