Double Hai – Story of the London Bus: A Film by Danial Riaz
Join us at T2F for a screening of ‘Double Hai – Story of the London Bus’ followed by a conversation with Danial Riaz, a documentary film maker from London now in Pakistan.
“Inspired by Shahzad Roy’s documentary series ‘Chal Parha’ which addresses the problems faced by educational institutes (specifically government schools) in Pakistan, I felt that more such topics need to be out there and discussed through our media” – Danial Riaz
The documentary aims to look into how the iconic red coloured double-decker of London came about to be such an epitome for bus networks across the globe. More specifically, the short film looks into its past – on how the bus evolved, and its present – how it’s managed by the government, what are its main sources of income and expenditure, how has technology been utilized and how quality of life across a cross section of the British society has benefited from the Bus.
