The Other Half of Tomorrow

Sadia Shepard and Samina Quraeshi

2012 | Pakistan

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 internal plurality within Pakistan and the urgent need for better understanding of its conflicts.  

Co-presented by Asia Society
