A riveting documentary of the recently assassinated Benazir Bhutto, a polarizing figure in the Muslim world. Following in her father's footsteps as a pillar for democracy, Bhutto was expected to dominate Pakistan's 2008 elections but the assassination sent Pakistan politics into turmoil. This major event sent shock waves throughout the world and transformed her from political messiah into a martyr for the common man. Written by
I just had the honor and pleasure of attending the screening in Washington DC in the National Geographic Theater.
After opening remarks from Speaker Nancy Pelosi to a capacity crowd of 400+ made up of members of Congress, State, USAID, press and the Ambassador of Pakistan and Benazir's sister we experienced a a film that I think exceeded all our expectations.
Currently playing in London and Pakistan, it is about to be released nationwide in 70 theaters across the US.
Additionally, it will air on PBS in 2011 as part of a Women's Week series of programming.
Judy Woodruff held a Q & A with the Director and Producer and did a write up here: http://www.pbs.org/newshour/art/blog/2010/06/bhutto-doc.html <---go see the trailer.
