At a political rally, cricket star turned politician Imran Khan asks the crowd, rhetorically, “What is the meaning of Pakistan?” Cary McClelland and Imran Babur’s sprawling documentary Without Shepherds follows six very different Pakistanis who are defining Pakistan: a model and entrepreneur, a touring musician, a truck driver, a former jihadist, a frontier journalist, and the aforementioned celebrity athlete turned opposition leader. The six are from different regions and backgrounds, but united in their verve to make their homeland a better place.
Cary McClelland is an artist and human rights advocate. He recently worked with Google and WITNESS to launch YouTube’s Human Rights Channel, dedicated to giving voice to citizen journalists.
Imran Babur graduated in graphic design from NCA-Lahore, and studied docudrama production from TTC-Berlin. He spent a decade working in advertising and music videos, and then shifted to documentaries full-time since 2000.
