Bhutto is the definitive documentary that chronicles the life of one of the most complex and fascinating characters of our time, and is the story of the first woman in history to lead a Muslim nation.  Educated at Harvard and Oxford, Benazir Bhutto’s life changed forever when her father, Pakistan’s first democratically elected president, chose Benazir to carry his political mantle over the family’s eldest son.  Her two terms in power saw acts of courage and controversy as she eradicated polio and stood up for women, while fighting the male-dominated political elite and a nervous military leadership.  With her assassination she transcended politics, but left a legacy of simmering controversy and undeniable courage that will be debated for years.  

Presented in partnership with Detroit Public TelevisionA presentation of the Community Cinema 2010/2011 film series.  This event is FREE and open to the public.
