Filmed in Karachi, This Shaking Keeps Me Steady sees three paramedics discuss their recurring nightmares sparked by their experiences at work: disturbing stories that haunt the first responders responsible for tending to violent events.
As well their recollections, televised re-enactments with victims, criminals and medical personnel showcase scenarios ranging from the banal to the horrifying.
Alternating between reminiscence and fiction, reality and imagination Shehrezad Maher creates a powerful and impactful reflection on trauma and the spectacle of violence in society.
