Audience Reviews for Shame

  • Oct 19, 2007
    [font=Century Gothic]"Shame" is a powerful, if unpolished, documentary about Mukhtaran Mai who was gang raped in the remote village of Meerwala, Pakistan on June 22, 2002 on the orders of the local tribal council in punishment for a perceived blow to the honor of a rival family by her younger brother. In cases like this, the family of the victim is shamed and the victim usually either departs or commits suicide. Whereas Mukhtaran did attempt suicide by swallowing acid, she later decided to take action by contacting the local cleric about her plight. He then escorted her to the nearest police station 18 kilometers away in Jatoi to file a complaint. At first they took no action but that changed after she talked to the press and gained international attention for her case. The moral of the story is: if in doubt, cause a stink.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]On the one hand, "Shame" is a portrait in courage. But it also shines a spotlight on rural Pakistan where the tribal councils rule with little interest in modernizing and treat women as chattel. There is no electricity in many parts and the central government is powerless to interfere. [/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]And I do want to take this time to restate my opposition to the death penalty, no matter how heinous the crime may be. [/font]
