Roxy Cinema, Renton -- Sun, Nov 9 -- 12:00 pm
Six bold people navigate the dangerous waters of Pakistan’s current crisis to discover a new tomorrow: a cricket star starts a progressive political party, a female journalist goes behind Taliban lines, an ex-mujahid seeks redemption, a trucker crosses dangerous territory to feed his family, a supermodel pushes feminism through fashion, and a subversive Sufi rocker uses music to heal. Filmed by a team of Americans and Pakistanis over two years, Without Shepherds cuts through alarmist media depictions of the country to celebrate the bravery of its people.
