DFW South Asian Film Festival in association with Radio Azad presents a documentary: THE JOURNEY WITHIN. This is a not to miss film for COKE STUDIO FANS! There will be a Q&A with Mian Adnan Ahmed after the film
In a post 9/11 Pakistan faced with challenges of war and conflict, a quest for self-identity leads the inspirational journey of a music show to help reclaim the rich and vast musical heritage of this region. In doing so it has become one of the biggest music initiatives from this side of the world, bringing together unique cultural experiences and genres, including but not limited to folk, sufi, rock, pop and rap music. We experience this important period in music by discovering the show from its humble beginnings, living through its spirit to reach the heart of the experience, as artists unify eastern and western sounds to make music that will resonate across the globe; impacting all involved and planting the seeds for an ongoing inward reflection towards who we are as individuals and as a people.

With the tragic demise of her husband, Seher has no option but to return to her hometown and live with her older sister, Meher. But Meher has made it clear that Seher is not welcome in their home. After all, she had been tending to the house in her sister’s absence for all these years. Furthermore, she cannot find it in her heart to forgive Seher for running off with the man she believed was in love with her. But the reality of what actually transpired is revealed through the story as both sisters try to find the right moment where they can come together and start a conversation.
