‘The Chronicles of Umro Ayyar’ is the first ever Pakistani 3D-animated feature film to screen on the Marche Du Film online platform at the Cannes Film Festival. 

The 77th Cannes Film Festival is turning out to be an auspicious event for the Pakistani film industry. This edition of the most prestigious film festival marks the historic debut of the country’s central hub following the Marche preview screening of the much anticipated The Glassworker.

Building on the momentum is the Karachi-based animation production house Ingenuity Productions with the Cannes screening of its 3D-animated feature film The Chronicles of Umro Ayyar. 

As The Chronicles of Umro Ayyar becomes the first-ever Pakistani 3D-animated film to be screened at the prestigious Cannes Film Market online, this might be a historic moment in its own right. Ingenuity Productions expressed their excitement on their official social media account, stating, “Our film’s presence at the Cannes Film Market promises to captivate audiences, showcasing the rich storytelling and cinematic prowess emerging from Pakistan.”

Described as an adventure fantasy on IMBD, the film is inspired by the epic tale of Tilism e Hoshruba. The story recounts the thrilling adventures of the legendary trickster hero Umro Ayyar as he travels through time and magical realms. 

However, beneath the fantastical surface lies a deeper theme that resonates with audiences of all ages: the quest for true connection and overcoming selfishness. Umro Ayyar’s journey becomes a testament to the power of forging bonds that transcend racial, gender, class, age, and personality differences. 

Besides the animated film, Ingenuity Productions is also working on another 3D animated series titled ‘Science Voyagers.’ This series depicts a curious boy embarking on time-traveling adventures to meet history’s scientific greats.

Additionally, the company is credited for producing two 2D animated series: ‘Aria and the Magic Jungle,’ focusing on environmental awareness, and ‘Yolki and Hatch,’ centered around childhood development. “We want to put the potential of the Pakistani animation industry on display on the world stage. 

We’re confident that the film’s stunning visuals and story will captivate audiences worldwide,” said Haris Basharat, Ingenuity Production’s CEO.
