  • The Miscreants of Taliwood

    2009. Australia. Directed by George Gittoes. The Miscreants of Taliwood takes us on an extraordinary journey to a forbidden zone: the remote tribal belt of Pakistan's northwest frontier. To enter this world, the director dressed in local costume and agreed to become an actor in the low budget Pashto tali movie industry. Teaming up with Pashto action and comedy stars, they make an over-the-top action drama, played out in what must be one of history's craziest film locations—just a cave or two away from the reputed hiding place of Osama Bin Laden. 90 min.
