2014 | 52 minutes | India-controlled Kashmir, U.S.A.

New York Premiere 

Since the 1947 partition of the British Indian Empire into what is now India and Pakistan, Kashmir—which immediately became a disputed territory—has existed in a state of perpetual occupation. The region’s plight is illuminated through the work of three local artists living in the Kashmir Valley. A talented young political cartoonist offers biting satiric commentary on regional politics. A middle-aged artist reflects, through abstract ink drawings, on his childhood and the tragic changes the militancy brought to his neighborhood. A senior artist uses vibrant spiritual paintings to reveal his quest for inner peace in the midst of unending social turmoil. The film puts a distinctly human face on the nuanced complexities of life under military rule and reveals the power of creativity in even the most dire of circumstances.
