SF Public Library Main Branch - Koret Auditorium | 100 Larkin Street, San Francisco, CA

Benazir Bhutto was the first woman to lead an Islamic nation and the former Pakistani Prime Minister’s life story unfolds like a tale with Shakespearean dimensions.

The documentary Bhutto by Duane Baughman is an intimate look at one of the most fascinating and important world leaders of our time. A panel discussion follows the film.

Following in her father’s footsteps as a pillar for democracy, Bhutto was expected to dominate Pakistan’s 2008 elections but the assassination sent Pakistan politics into turmoil. This major event sent shock waves throughout the world and transformed her from political messiah into a martyr for the common man.
