Warrior Poets: Guns, Movie-making and the Wild West of Pakistan

Benjamin Gilmour
Free sample

Australian Benjamin Gilmour travelled to Pakistan determined to shoot a film on its wild frontier. He had never made a movie before and it was illegal and extremely dangerous for him to do so in the region. But Benjamin was driven by his passion for the Pashtun people of the North West Frontier Province and for the remarkable gun-making town of Darra Adam Khel. This book is the behind-the-scenes account of the highly-acclaimed feature film, Son of a Lion. But it is more than just a 'making-of'. Ben tells the story of a country with an amazing and rich culture, and of the proud and loyal people who befriended him and helped make a seemingly impossible dream come true.

'Riveting, compelling and spine-chilling, this is storytelling at it's best.' Richard Kuipers, Variety.
