Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy Films (SOC Films) has released the seventh and final short film from HOME1947 series titled Dark Secrets.
The short filmÂ chronicles the childhood memories from an idyllic world, of chasing peacocks and eating grapefruit, which came to a crashing end in the ensuing riots that took place during the Partition of the subcontinent in 1947.

It is a series of 7-short filmsÂ which recreate the long-lost sights and sounds of what millions once called home and explores this world not through the words of historians and politicians, but through the eyes of those who lived through it.
