Film notes

'Gubbaare' is a 2016 surreal fantasy short-film directed by Syed Saad and Hammad Ul Hasan, and produced by Creative Studio, Media Art Productions and Syed Saad Films. Based on William Shakespeare's sonnet 'Seven Ages of Man' from 'As You Like It', the film compares the world to a stage and life to a play, and catalogues the seven stages of a man's life - infant, schoolboy, lover, soldier, justice, pantalone and the old age that culminates into an imminent death. Made on a shoe-string budget of mere $190, the film received rave reviews all over, notably highlighting a gripping screenplay and a wise fusion of surrealism and reality.
