My best guess is that this isn't out on the home video market yet.


IMDB led me to the official site for this film
( which includes U.S. contact information
for Ayesha Khan:


Telephone (505) 501-0264


According to the movie's Facebook site, the profs next chance to see the
film will be July 9th through 11th when it plays at the Twelve Gates
Gallery in Philadelphia.

Hello again,
Another day, another obscure film.

A prof found the 2008 drama, "Kashf: The Lifting of the Veil," in the
Internet Movie Database. Of course, we all know this doesn't prove
anything about its actual availability. I haven't been able to find it
anywhere, not even in WorldCat.

It was made in Pakistan, and the director was Ayesha I. Khan. The story
is about a man, Armaghan, who "returns to Pakistan after 25 years to
search out his Sufi master," and it "explores the pursuit of
spirituality and the inevitable intrusions of the material on those who
seek out a different reality." It is not the same movie as Kashf
al-mastur or Kashf hesab or Kashf hisab.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
