Noor
Pakistan, 2013, 78 minutes, SD
Noor Synopsis

Noor was five years old when he started to dance. With his delicate features and physical grace, the young Pakistani boy quickly became a popular attraction, allowing him to financially support his family. But the pressure soon proved too much, and Noor ran away at the age of nine. Taken under the wing of Pakistan’s transgender community (known as Khusras), the young boy travelled the country, performing in circuses and fairs. As the years passed, Noor began dressing as a woman, and fell in love with a fellow dancer. But when their relationship ended, Noor left the Khusras, striking out on his own with a single goal: to become a man again.


Premiering at the Cannes Film Festival, Noor has blazed a trail at film festivals the world over with its brazen and beautiful portrayal of a young traveller caught between the push and pull of gender, desire and destiny.
