In Flames

24 May – 30 May, 2024

A grieving student grappling with patriarchal oppression and debt in the wake of the death of her grandfather finds herself stalked by a sinister force in this powerful psychological horror.

The misogyny faced by women in Pakistani society is brought sharply into focus in Zarrar Kahn’s supernaturally tinged psychological horror. Medical student Mariam (Ramesha Nawal) is facing a mountain of problems after the sudden death of her grandfather leaves her and her widowed mother (Bakhtawar Mazhar) with debts. Unsure who to trust, the one bright spot is a growing friendship with fellow student Asad (Omar Javaid), but an unexpected event leads Mariam’s trauma to manifest itself in sinister ways. Khan’s tension-riven debut offers barbed commentary on the ongoing struggle for equality faced by many women while packing a genre punch.

Urdu with English subtitles.
