Saim Sadiq / PK, 2022 / 126 min.

The censor withdrew its ban, but Joyland – the first Pakistani film for a wide audience with an explicit LGBTQ theme – still can’t be seen in the densely populated province of Punjab. Striking detail: children’s rights activist and Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai is one of the executive producers.

Haider, the son of traditional Pakistanis, and his wife, Mumtaz, are a modern couple. She is the breadwinner while he looks after the house and kids. He also enjoys minding his three nieces, his brother Saleem’s daughters, who – according to their father – is a success.
