Film Screen: Parveen Rehman – The Rebel Optimist

This movie is an intimate portrait of Pakistani architect and urban planner Perween Rahman and her remarkable work for Karachi’s poor. An architect and urban planner, Perween Rahman dedicated her life for the poor of Pakistan. She was shot dead by armed assailants on her way home in March 2013.

“The first thing I did on joining Orangi Pilot Project (OPP) was to map the lanes.” she says in the film.  Perween had an alternate vision for the development of Karachi. “Development doesn’t come from concrete. Development is not five star hotels and mega road projects. What we need is human development”.
