Pakistani director, Shameen Obaid Chinoy, won Pakistan’s first oscar for the short documentary, Saving Face, about Pakistani women disfigured by violence and their fight for justice. The film features women victims of acid attacks, burnings, and other violence and the efforts of many to make such acts crimes punishable by life in prison. It also features the inspiring work of a Pakistani plastic surgeon who found new ways to rehabilitate the victims. This is a well deserved award for a courageous director and the women who were willing to share their stores. The link below highlights the film. I hope everyone can see it.
