MPTV Community Cinema: BHUTTO

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto's life story unfolds like a tale of Shakespearean dimensions. She evolved from pampered princess to polarizing politician in one of the most dangerous countries on Earth.

Accused of rampant corruption, imprisoned, then exiled abroad, Bhutto was called back to Pakistan as her country's 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.

This special seventy-five minute version of the film from Duane Baughman and Johnny O'Hara for Independent Lens will be followed by an open discussion. Join in!

Watch FREE previews the first Thursday of the month (Sept-May) at 6:30 p.m. Discovery World's Innovation Theater, 500 N. Harbor Drive, Milwaukee.

Parking in the underground structure is $1.00 for the event.
