About this item

From two-time Academy Award–winning documentarian Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy comes a cinematic portrait of her native and often misunderstood Pakistan. Traveling the length and breadth of the country, she meets men and women shaping the country’s financial and cultural future.

In Look But Only With Love, the two-time Oscar-winning director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy delivers a heart-warming profile of the unseen side of Pakistan: one of industrious entrepreneurs, a rich cultural history of words, poetry, and music, and a country desperately trying to overcome the hand it’s been dealt.

Obaid-Chinoy records emotional interviews with everyday Pakistanis who make up its rich and diverse population, such as a founder of a microfinance bank, a Sindhi musician, and a doctor treating amputees. Each, like Obaid-Chinoy, remembers a time in which Pakistan was free of violence and full of hope, but in recent years, the upsurge in violence and the encroachment of terrorist groups in tribal areas, have destabilized the country. Yet, each envisions a Pakistan brighter than before, one in which every citizen is empowered and employed, children across the country are educated and have opportunities to succeed, and violence and poverty are faint memories.

Look But Only With Love illuminates Obaid-Chinoy’s native Pakistan, a country rich with history striving for a brighter future.
