Event description

Description

A free screening of the acclaimed film, Khamosh Pani

Pakistani filmmaker Sabiha Sumar directs the political drama Khamosh Pani (Silent Waters), set in 1979 Pakistan near the Indian border. In the halcyon Pakistani Punjab village of Charkhi, a widow Ayesha lives with her beloved son Saleem, who finds himself attracted to the fundamentalist fervour of two young Islamists in the village. Events escalate with the arrival of Sikh pilgrims from over the border, who come to worship at the local shrine. This film is a rare cinematic exploration of the legacy of partition, the fragility of contemporary women's rights and the personal traumas ignited by violent fundamentalism. Silent Waters is a recipient of the Golden Leopard award at the 2003 Locarno International Film Festival.
