These Birds Walk

Alternately heart-wrenching and life-affirming, this Pakistani film documents the lives of young, homeless runaways in the crowded city of Karachi. First-time filmmakers Omar Mullick and Bassam Tariq originally set out to make a documentary about philanthropist and humanitarian Abdul Sattar Edhi--whose charitable foundation builds orphanages, women's shelters and welfare hospitals. The notoriously humble Edhi told the filmmakers if they wanted to know about him, they should concentrate on the people he helps. So they headed out into the streets and found a charming, scrappy poster child in 9-year-old Omar, who becomes the focus of this moving film. In Urdu with English subtitles. 71 minutes
