Dir. Saim Sadiq, Pakistan, 2022, 126 mins. Cast. Ali Junejo, Rasti Farooq, Alina Khan.

Set in the eastern city of Lahore, Saim Sadiq’s Joyland tackles issues of gender and sexuality. The Ranases are, on the surface, a functional, patriarchal family. The household is made up of Abbas, the elderly father, the older brother, Saleem and his wife Nucchi, and younger brother Haider and his wife Mumtaz.

Much to the embarrassment of his traditional father, Haider is the one in his relationship who stays at home, whilst Mumtaz goes to work at the salon every day - a job that she loves.

When Haider gets a job in a theatre as a backup dancer for trans starlet, Biba, and starts secretly dating her, everything changes, and the cracks that have always been there, tear the family apart.
