Beneblog: Technology Meets Society
JANUARY 26, 2013
Last night, Virginia and I were in a packed auditorium at Stanford watching a preview screening of a terrific new indie feature film, Josh. Josh ??? Against the Grain), the first feature film by director Iram Parveen Bilal, is set in modern-day Pakistan. Although the movie touches on many social justice issues, Iram made it clear that she didn't want to make another documentary about Pakistan. She succeeds in showing us, rather than telling, something true and challenging.
