The Other Half of Tomorrow

Sadia Shepard, Samina Quraeshi
2012 | 71 mins | Pakistan
FILMMAKERS IN ATTENDANCE |  World Premiere 

Discover a contemporary Pakistan that is very different from the stereotypes portrayed in mainstream media headlines. The Other Half of Tomorrow is a vivid portrait of the lives of a diverse set of Pakistani women working to change their country. A series of seven linked chapters, the film introduces us to the disparate contexts that make up a complex culture—from a women’s rights’ workshop in a village in rural Punjab to an underground dance academy in Karachi to the playing fields of the Pakistan Women’s Cricket Team. Intertwining the religious, economic, social, and political issues that are facing Pakistani society, The Other Half of Tomorrow explores the richness and plurality within Pakistan and the urgent need for better understanding of its conflicts.
