Come and watch one of the most significant films of our times.

Soz: A Ballad of Maladies - Premier show in Hyderabad

Film screening followed by the discussion with the filmmakers.

About the film:
A departure from Kashmir's Orientalist stereotype of a 'paradise' unfolds a transformed cultural landscape of the deeply militarized valley where spiritual ideals of Sufiyana music and traditional poetry metamorphose into political lyricism of modern Hip Hop and Rock. This film is a portrait of those poets, musicians and artists who have turned their art into weapons of resistance during periods of heightened state repression and violence in Indian-administered Kashmir. By evoking the collective memory of a people and unwinding threads of their folk history, the featured artists and musicians in this film negotiate with questions of survival, resistance and freedom – all deeply embroiled in the complex conflict of Kashmir.
