ScreenCraft Names Film Production Fund Winners

Leading development consultancy and screenplay discovery platform ScreenCraft and Santa Monica-based media financier BondIt Media Capital have announced two recipients of their Fall 2017 Film Production Fund. The first is documentary project Karachi’s Unknown Dead, conceived by Samira Shackle, Owen Kean and Haya Fatima Iqbal. Innovative and impactful, the film is set in Karachi, Pakistan’s troubled, throbbing economic epicenter. It will center on the Edhi Foundation, which runs clinics, an ambulance service, a graveyard, and the city’s only functioning morgue and is the largest voluntary social welfare organization in the world. Per Shackle, Kean and Iqbal, “Its workers care for residents of Karachi from birth until death and after as they struggle against the dual pressures of poverty and violence. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the care they provide for these neglected dead: Edhi workers collect the bodies, try to track down their relatives, and ultimately bury them, according a respect in death that many did not have in life.”
