Indian director’s docu project in Pak wins Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund 2012

By NewsDesk • Published on June 14, 2012

Two Children of the Red Mosque, directed and produced by Hemal Trivedi is one of the five projects that will collectively receive $100,000 funding from the 2012 Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund.

The documentary will be co-directed by Mohammad Naqvi and produced by Whitney Dow and Jonathan Goodman Levitt.

“After attending Pakistan’s most notorious madrassah, 12-year-olds Zarina and Talha pursue different dreams. Zarina attends school while trying to avoid marriage; Talha remains a madrassah student preparing for Jihad. Their stories personalize Pakistanis’ ideological war.”

Hemal Trivedi had recently edited the Oscar-winning documentary film Saving Face (Pakistan).

Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund is instituted by The Tribeca Film Institute (TFI) and Gucci. Now in its fifth year, the fund provides finishing finances, year-round support and guidance to domestic and international documentary filmmakers with feature-length films highlighting and humanizing issues of social importance from around the world.

The other projects to receive the fund in 2012 are: E-Team (Directors Katy Chevigny & Ross Kauffman), God Loves Uganda (Director Roger Ross Williams), First to Fall (Director Rachel Anderson) and Mercy Mercy (Director Katrine W Kjaer).
