Event description

Description

Kaifinama looks at the life and art of the Urdu Progressive poet Kaifi Azmi. Kaifi Azmi was both a poet for social change as well as one of the foremost lyricists in the Hindi film industry. Not content to limit himself to fine writing, he worked ceaselessly throughout his life as a catalyst for change among the disenfranchised. The film looks at his small-town roots, his commitment to socialism, his wide-ranging body of work and the enormous changes he brought to the life of the village where he was born. This extraordinary journey is documented through extensive
interviews with him and his wife Shaukat Kaifi as well as insights from his children - Shabana and Baba Azmi - and reminiscences by his friends and colleagues. Kaifinama thus is both the definitive film biography of Kaifi Azmi and a history of the times he illuminated with his genius.
