One Big Holiday / 39 Min. United Kingdom 2011 / English, Urdu (OmeU)

Iltaf, Shaukat, Badar, Mustaq and Ifti are all members of the same family, either by blood, either by heart. They all experienced the displacement from Pakistan to England in the early 1960's. The film takes the form of a travel, showing an aspect of migration rarely thought of: leaving a country mainly not for economic reasons, but for 'One Big Holiday', for a moment of great fun and friendship, but also for some protagonists, moments of terrible feelings of loss and suffering.
