About The Event

Apne Jiya Se Jaaniye Mere Jiya Ki Baat: Conversations Across Borders
Two Films by Shabnam Virmani

Had Anhad: Journeys with Ram & Kabir:
This film journeys through song and poem into the politics of religion, and finds myriad answers on both sides of the hostile border between India and Pakistan. Kabir was a 15th century mystic poet of north India who defied the boundaries between Hindu and Muslim. He had a Muslim name and upbringing, but his poetry repeatedly invokes the widely revered Hindu name for God – Ram. Who is Kabir’s Ram?

Don’t Fall In Love With Those Who Wander In Boats:
Taking inspiration from the poetry of the great Sindhi Sufi poet of the 18th century Shah Abdul Latif Bhitai, this film brings to life the poems of separation and loss from ‘Sur Samundi’, gently juxtaposing a spiritual and existential sense of separation, with the pain of socio-political partitions that mark our present day.
