The success of an animated comedy film, "The Donkey King," has attracted international attention to the movie industry in Pakistan, a country which normally makes headlines for violent terror attacks and religious extremism rather than culture and entertainment.

The "accidental" director of the film, 41-year-old Aziz Jindani, told EFE in an interview he was proud of the presenting a "soft face" of the country and added that it had a rich history of literature and film. EFE-EPA
