Screening: What Will People Say (2018 Belmont World Film Festival
*This film will be screened at The Studio Cinema in Belmont*
The SCC is proud to co-present Swedish/Norwegian/German film What Will They Say as part of the 2018 Belmont World Film Festival. This will also be the New England premiere of the film.
Based extensively on the director’s experience as a teenage daughter of Pakistani immigrants in Norway, the film represents a doomed quest to reconcile two worldviews and cultures that stand in fundamental opposition to each other. Pakistani immigrants living in Norway send their 16 year-old daughter away to live with relatives in Pakistan after she is caught kissing her secret Norwegian boyfriend, only to return to Norway after innocently bringing shame to the family yet again.
Speaker: Dr. Naheed Usmani, Professor of Pediatric Oncology at UMass Medical Center in Worcester, who is responsible for founding a number of Pakistani organizations in the US and Pakistan.
106 minutes. In Norwegian and Urdu with English subtitles.
