Lahore Landing: 'an interactive documentary on another side of Pakistan'
June 3, 2015 7:48 AM   Subscribe

Lahore Landing, an interactive documentary. "It all started when Taahira went to Karachi for a journalism internship ... Over Skype calls, she shared with us her experience – from underground indie rock concerts to alfresco BBQ nights. It surprised us. It seemed that all the media shared about life in Pakistan was a world of violence and terrorism when it was a lot more than that."

With a modest Indiegogo funding of USD2400, four final-year students from the Wee Kim Wee School of Journalism at Singapore's Nanyang Technological University produced Lahore Landing, their final-year project, and an ode of a 'side of Pakistan that we don't see'.

What a fascinating website! I really found myself surprised at how engaging it was right from the start (not overly keen on video, myself). The students should feel proud of the work that they've put together.

Thanks for sharing, undue influence.

I know! I was really surprised at how good it was - I expected somehow to have to give concessions to it for all kinds of reasons, not least that it's local to me, but I was pleasantly surprised. Perhaps it says something about how ignorant I am of what goes on at Wee Kim Wee, but well. It just feels really, really polished, and you're right, they should absolutely be proud of their work.
