CounterPulse Presents: ABJD

Presented by CounterPulse!

ABJD is a four part film series that marks the finale of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s six year multimedia project – Tomorrow We Inherit the Earth.  In this work four stories are told by Faluda Islam, a character who shape-shifts from ghost to jinn to zombie to alien. In the process she transcends time and space to speak to the spirits of revolutions past.

This project is heavily inspired by Islamic mysticism and spiritual traditions that speak to loss, memory and resilience. Additionally it is dedicated to Bhutto’s late father, Mir Murtaza Bhutto, a grassroots political activist who was killed outside his home in Karachi Pakistan in 1996.
