Karachi’s Unknown Dead

My first documentary project tells the story of the people who care for the approximately 3,000 unidentified corpses found on the streets of Karachi, Pakistan, every year.

The co-produced the film with my friend and frequent collaborator Haya Fatima Iqbal, and it was directed by my husband Owen Kean. It aired on Vice in August 2019, and 2020 it won a One World Media Award. (Owen and I discussed the film here).

You can watch the full film on YouTube (where it has, astonishingly, been watched over 800,000 times).
