It certainly didn’t attract as much attention as Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton did when filming a movie here two years ago. In fact, most residents probably didn’t even know a film was being shot at several Fairfield locations last week.

But a New York City production company, ARY Digital USA, was at Jennings Beach and Lake Mohegan last Thursday filming scenes for “Dobara Phir Se,” a Pakistani film. Its title translates to “And Then Again.”

According to Bilal Sami, a writer and co-producer of the independent production, the movie is a romantic drama about two Pakistanit expatriates who live in New York, meet there and fall in love. They take a road trip to upstate New York to visit with family.

Fairfield stands in for the upstate New York scenes — first just after the sun rose over Jennings Beach, and later at picnic table and along the trails at Lake Mohegan.

Sami said the film’s actors speak mostly in Erdu, and the movie is scheduled for release in Pakistan. Many of actors and crew members are Pakistanis, he said.

The film makers were looking, he said, for a place that was “pretty and picturesque,” which led them to Fairfield. The town also, Sami said, offeredvery different settings just a few miles apart. “It looks very lovely,” he said.

The company had to get permission from both the town’s Parks and Recreation Department and the Conservation Commission in order to secure a permit for the film shoot. The town charges $75 for a one-day permit for students films, non-profits and independent productions.

“It’s been wonderful,” Sami said. “The town has been great; everyone has been very helpful and it’s been a very pleasant experience.”
