Change in Perspective-Pakistan
Independent Films, Women, Social Responsibility Movies
Great film report on how circumstances, education, exchange as well as need and opportunity can modify fundamental misunderstandings.
The people from the remote Diamer District in northern Pakistan have always been conservative, religious and suspicious of outsiders. A few years ago, there was only 9% literacy, women couldn't earn their own incomes and people were open to extremist ideas. Now all that has changed. Although it was initially violently resisted, a poverty alleviation project initiated by the UN's International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), has now changed people's attitudes, making them resist extremist ideologies.
