On an intense spiritual quest, Qismat Ali wraps himself in iron bells and embarks on a grueling 200-kilometer pilgrimage across the scorching deserts of Pakistan. Filmmakers Matthieu Paley and Sebastian Feehan met while on assignment, both drawn to far-flung places. Paley spoke of a mysterious group of Sufi pilgrims he encountered in 2008 wearing bells and chains. They had told him of their journey across Pakistan's inhospitable desert. Last year, the duo went in search of the pilgrims, who accepted these strangers into their circle. They followed in their footsteps, ate together, shared the little available water, slept under the stars. They all walked fast and purposefully. This is a story of a group who are tough yet tender and whose devotion endures in the name of love, connection, and tradition. The filmmakers shine a light on a part of the world and a group that are underrepresented and often misunderstood.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.

Documentary director Sebastian Feehan has been telling intimate human stories for over 10 years. His films have been recognised at Sheffield Doc/Fest, the Griersons, Raindance, and BFI London Film Festival. He's currently finishing his latest feature documentary, Life on the Edge, a redemption story set in Greenland, exploring mental health, loss of culture, and climate change.
