Moin Khan, now a well-known motorcyclist of Pakistan, has a documentary produced to diffuse the negative image of Pakistan by showing the positive aspects that go undetected, hence the title Rediscovering Pakistan: The Untold Tale. This documentary is the result of his 3 treks into the Karakoram and Hindu Kush mountain, in northern Pakistan, leading a group of motorcyclists, gathered from various countries of the world. Seven of the members of the last group were Americans and two of the seven were women. People who have taken the journey on the motorcycle with Moin Khan, without fail, have returned jubilant and totally changed. The mountain has that effect, along with the hospitality of the inhabitants. There is nothing political here. It is all informative travelogue. This documentary was produced professionally and sustains a very high standard of photography and scenery is simply marvelous. The viewing time is approximately an hour. Moin Khan personally presents this movie with Q&A session following the screening.
