Directed by Hassan Amin
After waking up in an obscure room with no memory, MUNTAZIR finds a letter and, following its instructions, sets off only to find himself lost in the middle of nowhere. He asks the mysterious JABBAR for directions who again pops up when Muntazir reaches his destination. The two develop an uncanny companionship with Muntazir opening up to his new friend. As more envelopes are delivered, Muntazir fights to regain his memory about where he is and who exactly is Jabbar.
Hassan Amin is an aspiring filmmaker from Lahore, Pakistan. Influenced by the dream-like visuals of David Lynch & dark story-telling of Saadat Hasan Manto – his work thus far deals with topics of alienation, anxiety and other mental states bred by a perpetually cynical environment. He recently finished his degree in Film, Theater & Television from Beaconhouse National University and is looking forward to expanding his creative horizons.
