  1. siobhantebbs's rating of the film Hide and Seek

    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.

  2. El Abuelo Kraken's rating of the film Hide and Seek

    Muestra una realidad ineludible, que lastima nuestra condición humana. Seguimos tan atados a las costumbres y las creencias, que no vemos a aquellos que resultan afectados. Las minorías también deben tener un lugar digno en todas las sociedades del mundo.

  3. Larry Barnard's rating of the film Hide and Seek

    By the end I found I cared deeply for each of the subjects.

  4. Alexandra Díaz Vásquez's rating of the film Hide and Seek

    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.

  5. Funda Can Çuvalcı's rating of the film Hide and Seek

    It is an important and a courageous film considering the taboos in a Muslim society.

  6. captainfez's rating of the film Hide and Seek

    Happiness in the face of crushing opposition.

  7. zoerose's rating of the film Hide and Seek

    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.

  8. Nabil Hamzaki's rating of the film Hide and Seek

    "As Rousseau said, 'Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains.' Chains of family, religion, culture, an unlimited number of chains in society."

  9. Jeanine Zondag's rating of the film Hide and Seek

    From a global point of view, an important theme. Other than that, nothing special.

  10. msmichel's rating of the film Hide and Seek

    In recent years there have been several excellent documentaries about the transsexual experience...this isn't one of them. By focusing on the superficial and mediocre dancing this is a missed opportunity,

  11. Vinegar Factory's rating of the film Hide and Seek

    The final (spoken) line of the film is a powerful and poignant concept to meditate on. Brilliant film and worth watching to remind ourselves that freedom begins with the Self. Inspiring, heartbreaking and at times shocking.

  12. Jocelyn Leyva's rating of the film Hide and Seek

    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.

  13. maría f guerrero's rating of the film Hide and Seek

    The director chose interesting people that show the vast gamma and complicated issue regarding the LGBT community in Pakistan

  14. Bryan Sih's rating of the film Hide and Seek

    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.
