FRONTLINE: Outlawed in Pakistan
An alleged rape victim's odyssey through a broken justice system.
In Pakistan, women and girls who allege rape are often more strongly condemned than their alleged rapists. Deemed impure and shameful, some are even killed by their own families. For this unforgettable documentary, an earlier version of which premiered at Sundance, filmmakers Habiba Nosheen and Hilke Schellmann spent years tracing alleged rape victim Kainat Soomro's odyssey through Pakistan's flawed justice system--as well as her alleged rapists' quest to clear their names. FRONTLINE presents this powerful, intimate documentary that Variety describes as ""extraordinary.""
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
