I thought this movie looked really interesting. Unfortunately, none of these dates/times work for me. I hope some of you are able to see it.
Details including ticket information

Dinner with the President: A Nation's Journey. 2007. Pakistan. Directed by Sabiha Sumar, Sachithanandam Sathananthan. With Pervez Musharraf. Sumar and Sathananthan's documentary/diary interweaves personal reflection, an intimate dinner with former President Musharraf, and testimonials from culturally conflicted Pakistanis of various classes: upper-class fashion designers, beach-bumming bourgeois teens, tribal religious heads, peasant families, activists, and even the president's mother. What emerges is a portrait of a country struggling with its paradoxes, caught between stringent tradition and freewheeling globalization. Autocrats defend democracy, drunken revelers holler for their militaristic president, and conservative rural men tell the female documentarians, "We look at you and wish we could be like you." The resulting film is an extraordinary example of visual reportage that includes rare footage of Pakistan's election process, the violent response to the return of Benazir Bhutto, and an unprecedented personal portrait of Musharraf. In Urdu, English; English subtitles. 82 min.
