Two-time Academy Award winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, in collaboration with Here Be Dragons and WITHIN, premiered Pakistan’s first Virtual Reality film series, “Look But With Love”, at the Karachi Biennale 2017 on 22nd October 2017. The 5 part documentary series can be experienced at Frere Hall till 5th November 2017. 

SOC Films will also be bringing the documentary series to select schools and colleges across the country for which they have collaborated with technology giants, Lenovo Mobile Business Group and Google who have graciously provided them with Motorola Moto G5 smartphones and headsets respectively, which are needed to bring this initiative to completion and provide a three-dimensional experience to the viewer.

 Directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and presented by WITHIN, 'Look But With Love' is a 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.

These VR documentaries aim to promote the rich cultural history of Pakistan, champion the empowerment of women and children and evoke a sense of social responsibility and consciousness.

The films take the viewer on a journey through the culturally dynamic terrain of Pakistan with the help of five brave heroes: a musician trying to preserve the melodies of his forefathers, a social activist campaigning for clean water in Thar, a breath-taking dancer of Lahore, a doctor treating young patients in Karachi and an unstoppable all-women anti-terrorism squad.

Indeed, these five documentaries in the 'Look But With Love' series go beyond the headlines to take you into the very heart of Pakistan and explores the lives of Pakistan’s most fearless and passionate citizens.
