Powerful, Educational, Inspiring!
1 July 2010 | by citizensSee all my reviews

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.
