A journalist and a film maker, M. Haris Ansari spent quite a few years of his early career struggling to make a living yet keeping his passion alive. In year 2014, he teamed up with Bari adding his share of fire for film making and love for traveling. Directing and co-producing travel documentaries and survival shows for digital platforms, Haris endured and persisted to create nail-biting work in a relatively short period of time. The combo of surviving in extreme conditions yet shooting with surprising ease clearly makes him a pioneer in Pakistan. His film “Tomasz Mackiewicz (1973-2018)” participates in this year’s Film Competition.
