Doc Edge

Pakistan, USA 2015
Director: Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, Andy Schocken

The town of Lahore was a centre of musical culture - until music was considered sinful under Sharia law in 1977. Musicians were partly vilified and the music was banned into private homes.

After restrictions ease, an amazing recording of Take Five goes viral and several Pakistani musicians are invited by jazz legend Wynton Marsalis to perform at Lincoln Center.

Andy Schocken and Academy Award winner Sharmeen Obaid tell a different kind of story about Pakistan — a story about its people, not its politics; and how music has the ability to bring people together across cultural divides.
