For 2021, The Global Presence is honored to recognize Pakistani humanitarian documentary filmmaker, Naziha Mahmood, for her trailblazing works in the arena of altruism. Born & raised in Karachi, Naziha had been working five years as a television news anchor when she felt a deep calling to give greater voice to humans often least heard. Her first documentary, produced in 2009 and titled “Footpath” courageously exposes the raw brutality of daily life for children living in the streets of Karachi. Reworked and retitled as “Street Bullets” in December 2020, the film has earned international acclaim including “The Best Documentary Short International” at the Seattle International Film Festival and the Indie Filmmaker Awards.
Naziha also provided an intimate view into the daily life of one of Pakistan’s greatest humanitarians, Abdul Sattar Edhi, in 2015 with her documentary “The Lamp.”
