A day with the bus drivers of Karachi

Video

What would you do if you were Mayor of Karachi? We ask the bus drivers of Karachi.

If you want to understand a city talk to its ambulance and bus drivers, which is what RSA Pakistan Calling has been able to do, thanks to our partnership with Karachi University Visual Studies department. This film offers a fascinating insight into the experiences of bus drivers in Karachi, demonstrating how public servants are often disrespected by those with power and wealth. Discussions also delve into law and order, corruption, fears of sectarian violence, as well as their views on democracy and Britain.

Director: Asad Anees

Producer: Umair Nasir Ali

This film was made by the University of Karachi Visual studies department with the kind support of The Foundation for Democracy and Sustainable Development.
