Join KCTS 9 and Community Cinemafor a free, exclusive pre-screening of Bhutto at the Washington State History Museumin Tacoma.

A portrait of one of the most fascinating and complex figures of our time, Bhutto is the epic tale of the life and tragic death of Benazir Bhutto, who broke the Islamic glass ceiling as the first woman leader of a Muslim country.  Beloved by the people of her native Pakistan, she was reviled by the nation’s military establishment and male-dominated ruling class.  More than two years after her death from a suicide bomber, Benazir remains a divisive figure, a symbolic metaphor for the fight between terrorism and moderation.

Bhutto will air Tuesday, May 10, 2011 at 10:00 p.m. on the Emmy Award-winning PBS series Independent Lens on KCTS 9.
