Description

Producer Shrihari Sathe attending.

Pakistan's official Oscar® submission for Best Foreign Language Film, Dukhtar carefully combines an emotional story with a thrilling adventure. Allah’s 10-year-old daughter has been promised to an old tribal leader to settle a blood feud. Determined to protect her daughter at all costs, Allah enlist the help of a reluctant truck driver and changes the course of her simple life forever.

Afia Nathaniel’s assured debut, based on a true story and shot entirely on location in Pakistan, makes her a filmmaker to watch.
