Showgirls of Pakistan
With unprecedented access, this documentary intimately follows the lives of three showgirls living on the fringes of Pakistani society as working class women who have thrown respectability out the window: Afreen, a rising star in Punjab’s commercial theatre, Reema, a veteran, transgender stage dancer and Uzma, who dances at bachelor parties in rural Punjab in hopes of finding her way to Dubai. We find them locked in co-dependent relationships, fielding battles to safeguard their freedom and position in the precarious business, together with the constant threat of violence, censorship and annihilation from the state and fans at any moment.
In an alternative 1980s underground, women rule organized crime. Rising star Sophia will stop at nothing in her pursuit of power. As a lifetime of violence and web of uneasy alliances start to take their toll, she braces for a reckoning. Can she make it out of this one alive?
