The Flowers of Bajaur (1)

Larsha Pekhawar ta kameez tor mala rawra
Taza taza guloona dre saloor mala rawra - da Bajaur guloona

Travel to Peshawar to bring me back a black shirt
Fetch me some flowers - flowers from Bajaur

Samar Minallah, an independent young film-maker beckons to a call of distress from her ancestral Pukhtunkhwa. To identify the horrors of war, she made a documentary on the wretched state of refugees, rendering them 'homeless in their homeland'. Da Bajaur Guloona is a 25 minute film, that opens with kaleidoscopic landscapes of the fabled land and a heartbreaking commentary by the people of Bajaur.
