Look but with Love at the Karachi Biennale

The five films in the Look But With Love series from Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy go beyond the headlines to take you into the very heart of Pakistan..

Meet the artists and activists who are transforming their communities, working against all odds.

Look but with Love is Pakistan’s first virtual reality documentary series about the extraordinary people of Pakistan who are changing the socio-political landscape of their communities through causes they are deeply passionate about.

From a doctor in the slums of Karachi who has dedicated his life to providing free emergency care to children, to the Elite Commandos, a courageous community of women in Nowshera–the epicentre of the terrorist insurgency– Look but with Love explores the lives of Pakistan’s most fearless and passionate citizens.

We have a booth at Frere Hall where you can go and experience virtual reality and watch these films!

**These films are suitable for children 10 years and older**
