Art After Hours, Film
Following Amanda Brown’s and Benjamin Gilmour’s talk with Simon Marnie, join us for a special screening of the film, Son of a lion (2008).
In the tribal areas of Pakistan lies a town where the local industry is the handcrafting of firearms. It has been this way for more than a hundred years. Eleven-year-old Niaz Afridi works with his father Sher Alam learning how to make and test weapons. Sher Alam expects his only son to follow the tradition but Niaz has different ideas.
