“These Birds Walk” — trailer for a documentary portrait of contemporary Pakistan

One of the most interesting things about getting older: seeing the amazing work your old friends do.

Omar Mullick wasn’t even doing film or photography when I got to know him in the mid-1990s in Philadelphia, but now his projects include shooting, co-directing, and co-producing These Birds Walk, a documentary on Abdul Sattar Edhi, called “a living saint” in this Telegraph piece.

Omar and Bassam Tariq will be in Pakistan for the next couple of weeks finishing the feature. There’s more on the film’s website, its tumblr page, and on Facebook.

The trailer is stunningly beautiful:

Omar’s photography is pretty stunning too.
