Nar Narman is a short documentary on the life of a Pakistani poet, Iftikhar Naseem who lives in Chicago. The celebrated poet is regarded as the Urdu language's first gay poet of modern times. Along with his poetry, Ifti, as he is known among his friends, has been actively involved in the civil rights movement in the United States. Recently Ifti has been inducted into the Chicago's Gay and Lesbian Hall of fame. Though recognized as one of Urdu's finest poets, Iftikhar Naseem's flamboyance and his views on sexuality have landed him in controversy. In this film he talks about his journey from Pakistan of the 1970s to the US, his sexuality, undying love for Pakistan and more.
