"Saving Face" in Pakistan
Published on March 1, 2012 by Sara Foss

One of the most moving moments of last weekend's Academy Awards ceremony occurred when Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy won the Oscar for best documentary short. Her film, "Saving Face," tells the story of a London-based Pakistani plastic surgeon, Dr. Mohammad Jawad, who travels to Pakistan to treat women who have been disfigured by acid attacks, which are typically carried out by abusive men.

Over at ABC News, Christine Amanpour interviews Obaid-Chinoy about her documentary. Click here to see what she has to say. Also, click here to visit the home of the Acid Survivors Foundation in Pakistan.
