COMICS


Produced with CIDA, CCI, SAP, Carleton University,
and the Mithawan Watershed Management Project.

In August of 1998, I traveled to Pakistan on a CIDA internship with the objective of producing a 'participatory' documentary.  I still don't know what the P-word means, but along the way I teamed up with Anthropologist / Development Officer Amjad Naseer and Photographer / Cinematographer Jane Weitzel to produce the yet-unfinished documentary Camels Turbans Guns.

The film deals with changes and development taking place in a Baluchi community, one which has only recently ceased to be nomadic.  It touches on the strategic importance of Baluchistan through thousands of years of conquest and outlines the various fields in which outsiders are beginning to influence the Baluchis.
