In early 2012, brothers Noordin and Bhawal Mengal decided to make a film about the ongoing human rights crisis in Balochistan, a territory at the mouth of the Straits of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf that has been under illegal military occupation of Pakistan since 1948. The producers commissioned a British filmmaker, David Whitney, to make the film with their help.
After a lengthy development phase, shooting began on the “The Line of Freedom” in September 2012. The cast and crew braved high temperatures in the desert and mountains to shoot this short film at an undisclosed location.
Here is the official trailer of the film that will be released on November 16, 2013.
