Eye on Pakistan

Movie: ‘Son of a Lion’

Posted in Culture, Domestic Affairs by onpakistan on November 15, 2009

A recent movie based in Pakistan’s tribal weapon-making village of Darra Adam Khel.

For a Berlin Film Festival review see this.

For the official site see this.

For a youtube promotional trailer see this.

I have not seen this movie, but I am concerned somewhat by the juxtapositioning or placing in opposition arms manufacture and education. In fact, in reality, the relationship is opposite: the most ‘educated’ are the biggest lovers of arms and armament manufacture – the United State, Russia, Germany, France, Ukraine, Netherlands, UK. See this.
