Adeela Suleman’s documentary and installation, The Killing Fields of Karachi, considered the human impact of extrajudicial police killings, focusing on the father of one victim.

The exhibit memorialized 444 people killed by Rao Anwar, a cop who extrajudicially murdered civilians by staging fake encounters in which he claimed to fire in self-defense, but no police officer was killed or injured. Within two hours of its public opening, Suleman’s exhibit had been shut down by men who claimed to be from state intelligence, and the lower hall housing the accompanying short documentary film indefinitely sealed.
