Jamil Dehlavi is arguably Pakistan's leading filmmaker. Political, subversive and artistically maverick, Dehlavi's remarkable body of work stands out for its originality and engagement with the social and political questions of his time. An artist whose vision captures the diversity and power of both the religious and the secular in everyday life.

In The Blood of Hussain (1980), the annual mourning procession for the murdered Hussain, grandson of the prophet Muhammad, serves as the setting for this allegorical tale of revolutionary struggle against injustice and oppression. Banned by successive military regimes in Pakistan, the film has achieved legendary status in its country of origin.

This release also includes Dehlavi's landmark 1975 Towers of Silence, which weaves together scenes of Zoroastrian funerary rituals in which bodies are consumed by vultures with glimpses of armed insurrection.
