Event Details
Rice University - Rice Cinema presents Bhutto,Wednesday,April 27 at 7:00 p.m. Directed by Duane Baughman. As the first woman to lead an Islamic nation, former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhuttos life story unfolds like a tale of Shakespearean dimensions. She evolved from a pampered princess to a polarizing politician in the most dangerous country on Earth. Accused of rampant corruption, imprisoned, then exiled abroad, Bhutto was called back to Pakistan in 2007 as her countrys best hope for democracy. Struck down by assassins, her untimely death sent shock waves throughout the world, transforming Bhutto from political messiah to martyr in the eyes of millions around the world. Presented in partnership with Houston PBS Community Cinema.
