Khoon Diy Baraav
Palmerston Library 560 Palmerston Ave, Toronto, ON
SAVAC is pleased to co-present a screening of Iffat Fatima’s film Khoon Diy Baraav (Blood Leaves its Trail) with the Kashmir Solidarity Network and Upping the Anti. The film provides an account of state enforced disappearances in Kashmir through narratives of families of “disappeared” men. It gives access to everyday, personal, and collective modes of resistance to military occupation by the Indian state. Made over nine years this film offers an intimate, non-sequential account of the lives of Kashmiri women, their resistance to state oppression, and their understanding of the political moment. Their use of memory and remembrance as a mode resistance shows the interwoven political and personal spaces of occupied lives in Kashmir. The film captures a testimony of oppression and resistance that challenge and confront the erasure of “official” and mainstream accounts of the movement for national self determination in Kashmir. The film screening will be followed by a Q&A with Iffat Fatima.
