65 from Concordia Productions on Vimeo.

65 is a PIF (Public Information Film) commissioned by Pakistan’s ISPR. The narrative is a re-enactment of life during the 1965 war through the eyes of a different sort of war hero; a nurse whose task is to collect blood for the injured troops. The story is told in flashback as the now older woman remembers her own life, donating her jewelry for the war effort, working in the hospital, and the husband who died bravely in the war. The film was first aired on 6th September 2013 to widespread acclaim.
