ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: National Institute of Folk and Traditional Heritage (Lok) Virsa has announced an exciting schedule of events for month of July and August 2017.
According to schedule issued by Lok Virsa a month-long summer art camp, screening of films The Notebook, Gumnam, Dara and Chakkori, Mandwa film club anniversary, launching of computerized Lok Virsa Library Catalogue, folk band concert and Independence Day celebrations.
Executive Director Lok Virsa Dr. Fouzia Saeed told the state-run news agency in Islamabad that the events aimed to promote cultural heritage of the country.
She said that Lok Virsa was making efforts to inculcate knowledge about our culture and music in the younger generation, which was the future of the country.
Meanwhile, Lok Virsa Mandwa Film Club would organise screening of film “The Notebook” on July 8 at its Media center.
The film was directed by Janos Szasz. It is based on a widely admired novel and written in French by the Hungarian-born writer Agota Kristof.
The film is mostly faithful to the details and mood of the book but it is also muddled and sensationalistic and superficially shocking rather than profoundly provocative.
