Closer to God

A fascinating Swiss documentary about two Pakistani men. One is a dervish, undertaking a life-long pilgrimage, the other is the custodian of a centuries-old musical tradition. The film follows the men as they visit impressive holy sites, as well as in their everyday conversations, and provides a beautiful, sideways look at Pakistani society.

P.S. Buy your tickets before they run out!
