Benazier BhuttoFollowing years of exile, former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in 2007 shortly after returning to her homeland. In 2008, a photo exhibition in Toronto painted the horrifying picture of Pakistan's first and only female Prime Minister's final moments, shocking countless gallery-goers who dared examine the violent pieces of journalism. It was at this exhibition that my curiosity for this complex and powerful political figure took shape.

Thanks to a glossy and pricey-looking doc put together by directors Duane Baughman and Johnny O'Hara, the Bhutto family legacy has been framed as best as they could manage, given the volumes of content available.
