Web Series Documentary on Dr Abdus Salam All Set to Release on Netflix

Netflix has never remained behind in highlighting the series and documentaries based on the popular Nobel laureates. Trailing in the same account, the documentary based on Pakistan’s first and only Nobel Laureate in Science, Dr Abdus Salam will be reaching the streaming giant Netflix from the next month.
Titled as Salam – The First ****** Nobel Laureate, the documentary has already received multiple screenings at various international film festivals, including South Asian International Film Festival, Chicago South Asian Film Festival, DFW South Asian Film Festival and South Asian Film Festival of Montreal.
As per the latest reports, Salam – The First ****** Nobel Laureate will be digitally accessible for a wider range of global audience through this ace streaming platform, Netflix, from October 1, 2019.
Directed by Brooklyn-based film director, Anand Kamalakar and produced under the banner of Kailoola Productions, the web documentary will revolve around the extraordinary life of this charismatic and acumen Pakistani physicist Abdus Salam, in all its colour, vitality and tragedy. It will be a story of a man who moved through two different worlds with complete ease, namely: of science and religion, modernity and tradition, war and peace and obscurity and celebrity. Dr Abdus Salam had won the Nobel Prize in 1979 and became the very first Pakistani to achieve this distinction, and only the fourth from the subcontinent.
Malala Yousafzai, another Pakistani Nobel Laureate, threw light on this film, stating, “A film on him is very timely. His story of brilliance needs to be told and amplified.”
However, the official website of the production house stated, “By telling this complex story of a man, who due to extremism could not strengthen his people as he so deeply desired, the film draws attention to the state of affairs in the world today, where knowledge is sacrificed at the altar of ignorance and intolerance, depriving the coming generation of all that is precious.”
