Tanya Panjwani’s Sanam Marvi documentary wins Commffests’ Making A Difference Award

Marvi (52m, Canada, Pakistan, USA) directed by Tanya Panjwani.

This film embarks on a journey through Pakistan with renowned singer Sanam Marvi to discover her roots in Sindh and Punjab, through the shrines of saints that inspired her to deliver the message of Sufism which permeates the land. It follows her creative process to spread this message through live concert performances, and documents her challenges in spreading the Sufi message in Pakistan and all over the world. We discover the Sufi Saints of Pakistan such as Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai, Laal Shahbaz Qalandar, Sachal Sarmast, Bulleh Shah, and Shah Hussain through the eyes of Marvi, and speak to teachers and experts who were a part of her mystical journey.
