(Ashvin Kumar, 2013, India, 1:22)
“They make a desolation and call it peace.” Agha Shahid Ali.
Testimonies of ordinary Kashmiris recount a brutal militancy and its terrible response. Dodging agents of Indian armed-forces, the filmmakers were able to obtain rare testimonials in the highest militarized zone in the world. The film tells how freedom is conceded and replaced by fear, governance by institutionalized oppression and a paradise made desolate on the watch of India: a secular, democratic republic.
