In early 2012, brothers Noordin and Bhawal Mengal decided to make a film about the ongoing human rights crisis in Balochistan, a large province in south-western Pakistan. The producers commissioned a British filmmaker, David Whitney, to make the film with their help.
After a lengthy development phase, shooting began on the "The Line of Freedom" in September 2012. The cast and crew braved high temperatures in the desert and mountains to shoot this short film at an undisclosed location.
After the production stage, editing commenced in The UK and the film was completed in late 2012.
