A documentary by the Pakistan’s Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), titled as “Glorious Resolve” received the first prize in the International Film Festival “Eserciti-e-Popoli” (Army and People) held at Bracciano.

More than 60 films, produced by the NATO and other 24 countries were presented at the film festival.

According to an ISPR press release, Glorious Resolve received the Jury’s Special award from the President of the Italian Senate.

“(It is) a technically outstanding and emotionally powerful dramatization of the story of the courageous soldiers under fire in a dire combat situation,” the President said.

The award was received by a representative of the Pakistani Embassy in Rome.

Glorious Resolve is based on a true story about the infantry soldiers “who fought against all odds when 1500 miscreants raided one of the section level outpost of an Infantry Battalion in South Waziristan Agency on the night of 29 May 2009.”

The documentary highlights “not only the sacrifices and achievements of the Pakistan Army in War against Terrorism but also its glorious resolve to uproot the menace of terrorism from Pakistan.”

Glorious Resolve recreates the sacrifice of 43 soldiers of the Punjab Regiment who laid their lives during the attack.
