Sharmeen Obaid’s Freedom Fighters Nominated for Emmy Awards

ISLAMABAD – Famous Pakistani filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy achieved another achievement as her documentary “Freedom Fighters” won a 41st Annual News and Documentary Emmy Award nomination for “Best Feature Film in a News Magazine.”
Freedom Fighters has already won the award for best documentary short at the Tallgrass Film Festival. The winners of the notifications will be announced on September 21 at an online ceremony.
The documentary “Freedom Fighters” tells the story of three brave women: a former married child, a police officer and a trade unionist who speaks out against inequality.
It was co-directed by Maheen Sadiq and produced by SOC Films for the Center for Investigative Journalism. This documentary was part of a documentary series in which four female directors created films about women’s empowerment opportunities.
Chinoy said these topics spark difficult conversations and make people uncomfortable: “Change only happens when people are forced to discuss an issue.”
