The Glassworker

‘The Glassworker’ is a 2D animated feature film directed by Usman Riaz. 

It is the first original feature by Mano Animation Studios and the first hand-drawn animated production from Pakistan.

Vincent and his father Tomas, run the finest glass workshop in the country and find their lives upended by an impending war in which they want no part.

The arrival in their town of an army colonel and his young, talented violinist daughter, Alliz, shakes their reality and tests the relationship between father and son.

The love that develops between Vincent and Alliz is challenged constantly by the differing views of their fathers. It is a time when patriotism and social standing are considered more important than free thought and artistic pursuits. It is a time when love is not relevant.
