‘I Am Pakistan’ is a short video that displays the many positive sides of Pakistan which generally go unacknowledged.
The video starts with the line “I am not what you think” and goes on to explore the different areas of life where Pakistan has actually reached milestones.
The short length clip, which is done very well in terms of its animation, art and transition between sections, features a number of prominent personalities including media, military, charity, fashion, development and politics to show how far the country has reached in each sector.
The makers of the video, iampak.org explain the purpose of the project on their website:
I Am Pakistan speaks towards the future millions of our citizens at home and abroad. With a reason to look forward, we have travelled across the country from Khyber to Karachi finding the true soul behind a Pakistani.
A lot has been said about Pakistan as a nation and as a people. However as Pakistanis, at home and abroad, we know that a lot of what is said is untrue and at the same time, a lot of what should be said is not said at all.
Video Rating: Two thumbs up for the positive message and its creative presentation.
