Without Shepherds – Six bold Pakistanis struggle with their country’s current crisis and try to build a different tomorrow: Imran Khan the cricket star starting a progressive political party, a female journalist working behind Taliban lines, an ex-mujahidin seeking redemption, a trucker crossing dangerous territory to feed his family, a supermodel pushing feminism through fashion, and a subversive Sufi rocker using music to heal. Filmed by a team of American and Pakistani filmmakers over two years, this film cuts through alarmist media depictions of the country to celebrate the bravery of its people.
