Karachi’s feminists organise a woman’s march, coming up against Pakistan’s state, media and radical religious right. Filmmaker Anam Abbas follows the march’s organisers as they negotiate a deeply surveilled, paranoia-inducing, and often physically violent space in the hopes of spurring a revolution. A philosophical work, This Stained Dawn is not just about the Aurat March, but about the act of political organising itself.
This film is available for the extension of the festival, until Sunday 14 November.
