Without Shepherds

Nov 16, 2013 @ 12:00 pm

Filmmaker in Person!
A rare and essential glimpse into six brave lives trapped in the turbulent waters of Pakistan today: a cricket star (Imran Khan) building a new political party, a female journalist working behind Taliban lines, an ex-mujahid seeking redemption, a trucker crossing dangerous territory to feed his family, a supermodel (Vaneeza) pushing feminism through fashion, and a subversive Sufi rocker using music to heal. Filmed by a team of Americans and Pakistanis over two years, the doc cuts through alarmist media depictions of the country to celebrate the bravery of its people.

With Short: From Melody Queen to Muslim Madonna (Fawzia Afzal-Khan, 2013, USA/Pakistan, 16mins), a history of Pakistan through its women musicians.
