29.11.2016: Thrust Into Heaven at Karlstorkino

On Tuesday, 29 November 2016, 7 pm, the movie „Thrust Into Heaven“ will be showed at Karlstorkino. Thrust Into Heaven focuses on Sanjesh Dhanja, an activist whose NGO “Pakistan Hindu Seva Welfare Trust” promotes Pakistani-Hindus’ cultural identity and fights for their rights as equal citizens of the Islamic Republic.
Framed by Sanjesh's life and work, the film deals with the highly complex issue of alleged forced conversion and marriage of Hindu women in Pakistan.
This film has been produced under the direction of Jürgen Schaflechner and Sarah Ewald (Department of Modern South Asian Languages and Literatures) and  with the support of the Filmförderung Stuttgart, Heidelberg University and Cluster Asia and Europe.
