It’s a privilege for Pakistan women to make their homeland proud with a number of internationally recognized feats and accomplishments.
Earlier, it was Sharmeen Obaid who won two Oscars for making empowering films, and now yet again another talented and highly spirited filmmaker, Nausheen Dadabhoy, has been shortlisted for the Oscars and has made the whole nation really proud.
Nausheen is a Pakistani-American cinematographer whose short film “La femme et le TGV – Jane Birkin” (a movie about a train spotter in her own way) was nominated for the Oscar Live Action Short Film category. Nausheen proudly shared this amazing news through her official Facebook account. She wrote: “Last night I watched Trainspotting. It’s the film that convinced 14 year-old me to become a filmmaker. This morning, twenty years later, I woke up to the news that a film that I shot La femme et le TGV – Jane Birkin (a movie about a train spotter in the her own way) was nominated for the Oscar Live Action Short Film category.”
Nausheen’s short film is a heart-rending story between a lonesome woman and a TGV train driver.
Below is the official teaser of the movie.
