‘Joyland’, directed by debutante Saim Sadiq, tells the tale of a patriarchal family, craving for the birth of a boy to continue the family line. 

The film stars Sania Saeed, Ali Junejo, Alina Khan, Sarwat Gilani, Rasti Farooq, Salmaan Peerzada and Sohail Sameer. It was released in Pakistan in November after a short ban.

‘Joyland’ is currently in the 10-film shortlist for the Oscars’ Best Foreign Film category, where it is competing with Indian film ‘Chhello Show’ (‘Last Film Show’).
