Here’s a side of Pakistan you may not have seen—and a film not about the Taliban. In this stunning observational documentary, filmed in the capital city of Karachi, a runaway boy’s life hangs on one critical question: where is home? The streets, an orphanage, or with the family he fled in the first place? Simultaneously heart-wrenching and life-affirming, These Birds Walk documents the struggles of wayward street children and the samaritans looking out for them.
