Director Bio

My Pure Land is Sarmad Masud’s first feature. His short film Two Dosas was voted best film at Film London by David Yates and then went on to be long listed for both a BAFTA and an Oscar after picking up numerous awards on the festival circuit. He also wrote and directed Adha Cup, which was the first Urdu language drama commissioned by Channel 4.

Body

This striking drama is based on a remarkable true story, told in partial flashbacks, about how a mother and her two daughters try to protect their remote Pakistan home, picking up machine guns to fight off a virtual army of armed men. In the best traditions of Assault on Precinct 13 (1976), the women do all they can to survive and with their supply of bullets dwindling they still refuse to give in. An impressive first feature from Sarmad Masud, produced by Bill Kenwright.
