I met independent filmmaker Mohammed Naqvi a couple of years ago when he participated in the IFP Director’s Lab, which I taught. Now, he’s finished a powerful film, Shame, which is a doc version of the dramatic script he was writing back then. Premiering on Showtime this week, the film “tells the true story of international human rights icon Mukhtaran Mai, a Pakistani peasant who was gang-raped and publicly shamed in her village, but used her trauma to spark a legal revolution that exposed centuries of brutal tribal conflict and government mismanagement.”

Here are the Showtime dates:

Showtime May 31 9:00 PM
Showtime Too Jun 3 8:00 PM
Showtime Jun 6 6:15 PM
Showtime Jun 11 6:30 PM
Showtime Too Jun 12 5:55 PM

And here is the trailer:
