protecting space…

On an afternoon visit to the shrine of Abdullah Shah Ghazi, Karachi’s patron saint, I am not surprised that we have to go through a security gate, or that the main road outside the building is surrounded by barbed wires.

Inside a stall at the entrance where women had to undergo security searches, I interview two women guards.

The video was screened at Voices Breaking Boundaries’ living room art production, Women Under Siege.
