How We Celebrate Freedom
A combination of vérité, rare archive and poetry, exploring the many meanings of ‘freedom’.
Dir Sanjay Kak
Kashmiri, Urdu with EST
Sanjay Kak explores the many meanings of Azadi (Freedom) using a combination of vérité, rare archive and poetry, and sets his film during the long-running conflict in Kashmir, possibly the most militarised zone in the world. It’s now 10 years since the release of his film but the words of Kashmiris continue to bear urgent witness to the unfolding trauma. ‘Start speaking about Kashmir again. Start speaking about Kashmir now,’ insists Kak.
An informal discussion in the Blue Room with Sanjay Kak and writers Mirza Waheed and Nitasha Kaul follows the screening.
