INDEPENDENT LENS | Dinner with the President | Clip 3 | PBS

Duration: 03:14

www.pbs.org/independentlens/di... Directors Sabiha Sumar and Sachithanandam Sathananthan sit down with former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, before he resigns from office, to address his ideas of a democratized society in their country. The directors engage Musharraf in conversation about his political past and vision for the future and ask the bold question—how does an army general plan to establish democracy in Pakistan?


In this clip, a dramatic coup by Pakistan's army chief leaves a group of liberal friends wondering: Can a general in uniform bring democracy?

DINNER WITH THE PRESIDENT premieres Tuesday, October 28 on Independent Lens, a weekly series airing on PBS. Hosted by Terrence Howard, the acclaimed series showcases powerful and innovative independent films. Presented by ITVS, INDEPENDENT LENS is broadcast on PBS stations nationwide.
