Yet another feather in the cap of Pakistani filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy
Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy’s filmmaking prowess is no secret to anybody and seems like she has another feather to add to her director’s hat. Obaid-Chinoy has been named one of the best 18 Asian directors!
The list, compiled by Asia Tatler, link directors from South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, and more obscure up-and-coming ones from the Philippines, Taiwan, etc. Coming in at 16, Obaid-Chinoy is the only Pakistani on the list.
Describing their reasoning behind Chinoy’s selection, the outlet wrote, “She’s a journalist, an activist and also a filmmaker, most known for her work that put the spotlight on the inequality that women face.
Because of this, she has received two Academy Awards, six Emmy Awards, and a Knight International Journalism Award.”
