Open-hearted documentary. Seems to capture the diversity of experiences of trans women in Pakistan, whilst highlighting their community spirit and reaffirming the shared humanity that brings us all together. The amount of courage these women have to keep living their lives is astounding.
I enjoyed this. It's nice to know that the LGBTQIA community has a similar sense of humor throughout the world. The documentary was natural and fluid. It exposes a community that's barely spoken of: LGBTQIA Muslims. In its essentiality, the transgender culture in Pakistan was uncovered a bit more. I thought it was beautiful.
Short vignettes of LGBT life in Pakistan offer an eye-opening account on an affair quite unknown to most people. The director tries to balance his portrait by focusing not only on the life stories, but also on humorous moments, and the protagonists' concerns, fears, complaints and hopes of change in the Pakistani culture.
Despite religions (it's very valuable to watch a film about muslim trasgenders, tho), in this documentary we'are able to watch, even reach, a deeper sense of how trasgenders live and think, realizing that they're just humans and how they have been specifically affected by our stricts ways of living. Very moving, i really felt touched.
By far one of the most significant and humane films to ever come out of Pakistan: a film that is daring in the truest sense of the word; a film that feels 20 years ahead of its time, with characters who betray overwhelming strength because they are so matter-of-fact in their struggle. Also of note: Saad Khan and Saadat Munir risked personal safety to bring this film to the world--testament to its urgency. A must see.
