EghtesadOnline: A Pakistani author said introducing the Iranian films to Pakistani audience is a good idea.
'Hamna Zubair' in an article published in Pakistan's 'Dawn' English newspaper, said the month of Muharram has passed, but ticket sales in Pakistan cinemas haven’t picked up that is why the films disturbers have to look for foreign content and Iranian films are very good choice in this regards, according to IRNA.
She said the Pakistani film industry is not yet in a position to produce more than a dozen mainstream films a year — if that — so cinema owners have little option other than to look for something that’ll pull in the crowds: Enter Iranian films.
Now, introducing Iranian films to a Pakistani audience is, in theory, not a terrible idea: Iran produces provocative, award-winning features that ought to be seen by more Pakistanis, said the Pakistani author.
She added that the gains made in screening Iranian films will not be monetary; they will be moral and intellectual.
