Archiving Pakistan’s Cinema History – A helping hand of a Frenchman

Philippe Jalladeau, a French researcher of cinematography has been awe-struck after watching Shoaib Mansoor’s ‘Khuda Kay Liye’ thrice.

The researcher, on a mission to promote and archive films from across the globe, has already proved to be a very useful element for Pakistan’s cinema revival. He has helped promote “Jago Hua Savera“, a 1958 classic that won Pakistan a prize at the Moscow Film Festival.

Not only does Jalladeau plan to produce copies of this epic movie but also aims at building a proper archive for the Pakistani cinema

Do you know Pakistan is one of the few countries that doesn’t have a proper archive? Bangladesh has one, even Afghanistan has an archive, so why not Pakistan!

He also intends to lecture Pakistani students on cinema and make a feature film by collaborating with them.
