ZINNIA NAQVI: SEAVIEW

For this 2014 experimental film Seaview (2014), Zinnia Naqvi travelled to her parents' homeland of Karachi, Pakistan to compare childhood memories with lived experience. Combining home video and recent footage along with text, conversations, and testimonials that often contradict the imagery, Seaview reveals the complications of translating culture across time and seas. Naqvi confronts her personal struggle between the ideals of Western and Eastern societies, ultimately confounding any single understanding of Pakistani society.
