Charm of Transitoriness ~ short films at Goethe ~ 30 Sep

Karachi, a city with 18,000,000 inhabitants is facing the same problem that Berlin faced in 1989: a boom in construction work and no preservation for the historical infrastructures. Berlin controlled the problem properly keeping in mind the value of these antiques in the next generation.

The old buildings of Karachi should also be preserved in the same manner. To create awareness amongst the Pakistani public, Goethe-Institut Pakistan is presenting 10 video clips that captures the historical places of Karachi and the interior Sindh.
