On TV: ARMED WITH FAITH

Coming to PBS’s Doc World on the WORLD Channel this Sunday, March 18:
ARMED WITH FAITH

Directors:
Geeta Gandbhir and Asad Faruqi

Premiere:
Sheffield 2017

Select Festivals:
DOC NYC, Atlanta, Vancouver, Salem

About:
A profile of members of a bomb squad on the Afghan-Pakistani border.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
After 9/11, Pakistan, an American ally in the global war on terror, is plagued by both homegrown and international terrorism. The small yet heroic Pakistani Bomb Disposal Unit is on the frontline of defense, defusing bombs, navigating land mines, and grappling with suicide bombers, all while dealing with financial hardship and familial pressure. Harrowing and suspenseful, Geeta Gandbhir and Asad Faruqi’s compelling film takes us on the ground with this dedicated squad of men who risk their own lives every day for their country.
