Without Shepherds2014

  • 4.1
WITHOUT SHEPHERDS looks beyond the headlines and breaks open the stereotypes of "the most dangerous country in the world." An American filmmaker partners with leaders of an emerging Pakistani film community and travels across the country to learn what life is like at the heart of the war on terror. They find a cricket star building a new political movement, a trucker far from his family working to get by, a supermodel launching the country's first fashion channel, a subversive Sufi rocker, an ex-mujahid without a home and a female journalist working behind Taliban lines. Visually dazzling and hauntingly intimate, this film looks head-on at the problems of Pakistan through the eyes of these six people and creates a space for Pakistan to speak to its own experience.

I liked this movie a lot. It is composed of many scenes of life in Pakistan, some of which follow a politician, a newswoman, a fashion model, and a truck driver. I got a sense of the diversity in Pakastani life, the contradictions of thought, and the sense of a crowded, poor, and religious country which is undergoing great change. It is kind of a sophisticated version of Globe Trekker.
