In the Name of God directed by Shoab Mansour/ Pakistan / 2007 / 170 mins / 35 mm / Urdu with English Subtitles

Tickets: $10 Adults / $6.50 Pioneer Members

This debut epic which won its director the Silver Pyramid award at the 2007 Cairo International Film Festival is about two brothers who are pop musicians in Lahore, one of whom gets radicalized under the influence of extremists, while the other goes to America and gets unlawfully detained after 9/11. It is also about Mary (Maryam), a British girl of Pakistani origin, who is brought to Pakistan by her father and married off against her will. With all the Bollywood elements of musical stars (Naseeruddin Shah); love and romance; politics, religion and intrigue, In the Name of God is a riveting complex plot that switches from Lahore to London, from Waziristan to Chicago with urgent pace dissecting relationship and sentiments, without losing grip on its multilayered narrative.
