Alliz, a regular visitor of the shop, makes Vincent fall for him and that is how the story further progresses.
While talking to the media sources, the filmmakers told them:
“The story is set in the fictional Waterfront Town. Vincent is a trainee glass blower learning from his father in their glass shop. Alliz is an exceptional violinist striving to find her own unique voice on the instrument.”
“The film will comment on the effects of war on the children and follow both characters through their determinative years as life gets more complicated and prevents their friendship.”
Jami Moor, a well-known Karachi-based film director also spoke out in support for the team and its exceptional movie.
He wrote on Facebook:
This one is the best ever animation from Pakistan! This is film making, pure heart-arming purity of hard working, genius kids. The younger filmmakers doing what many adults are unable to do.”
It is amazing to see that creativities such as these are being taken. This will help in expanding Pakistani showbiz and it will make opportunities for the people working in the respective fields.
Pakistan has no lack of artistic talent and its time they came forward and showed the world what they are capable of doing.
The Glassworker by Usman Riaz is a realization of that supercilious goal.
